Hi, My mum has Vas D and Alz. I found her on New Years Day after being on the floor all night. The carers had not been able to get in and had no contact numbers - Thats a whole, other post! Anyway 999 and 5 weeks in hospital later the bed blocking issue is all over the news and £100M is released to "solve it". The result was the hospital social work discharge team decided she was fit enough to go home with x3 daily care, This was against my wishes and also those of her social worker. We had been working on getting a respite visit to a CH with a view to her moving into one. 3 weeks later its groundhog day and I find her on the floor again after being there all night. I was only there to let workmen in to the house before I left for work. The carer was not scheduled to be there until 11am so possibility of 14hrs on the floor with no-one knowing. There main rationale for this was that she had an alert system in place to call for help. Unfortunately due to AD she has not been able to remember she has an alert for the past 12-18 months and was not using it. She did not press it this time. She had 3 other falls before this one, all trying to get out of bed but thankfully all during the bay. So now I am digging my heels in or as my daughter says "going all Ninja" on them. I have taken the keys out of the keysafe and will not be accepting her home unless they provide an overnight carer every night. Her carers have been great, so have her own social worker and she would be paying for most of the cost so how come this can go so wrong? Tonight will be my first solid sleep for 3 weeks. During the 5 weeks she was in hospital I got used to being a normal functioning human again. Its hard to go back again. To everyone out there in the same boat dont give in as easily as I did. Get in touch with your own inner Ninja.
