Ok, long story short....my mum has had carers twice a day for aboutm2 months now but it hasn't really been working out ie she's rude and aggressive to them and won't do anything they're being to paid to help with eg personal care, walking the dog. In fact she's given up walking the dog and won't even let him in the garden which has led to him soiling in the house and her spreading it around from her shoes which she won't take off. As of today, I've been told that for the last few days she has refused to let the carers into the house and tells them to go away and never come back. She's been referred urgently to mental health, something which the GP failed to do over a month ago and an assessment is taking place next week. I have the dog situation under control but am wondering if anyone thinks she might be sectioned? it's what I want to happen as she has been severely neglecting herself for months now and a neighbour has reported to the GP that she wanders about outside her house and god knows where else.
