Does anyone have experience of a loved one being discharged from hospital into a care home for assessment? Mum had a fall at home and was taken by ambulance to hospital- no broken bones or other injuries thank goodness- stayed there a few days and was discharged to a LA care home for assessment as to her future needs. The care home is adequate, clean and tidy, but a bit tired but the staff are lovely. Mum has no idea where she is or why she is there- lots of love lies being told to her by me which seem to be working. I have visited at various times throughout the day and find that all the residents on her wing appear to be just sitting in the small lounge, the tv is on but no one is watching it and no activities seem to be taking place to stimulate the people there. Obviously I haven’t been there all through the day but I get the impression that the residents are taken to the lounge after breakfast and sit there until lunch etc. etc. I suppose my question is, is this normal so that staff can assess a persons capability without any stimulus ?
