Hi my mum has dementia and was living at home with carers for an hour in mornings and I was coping (just) with doing the rest. Over xmas she got uti and ended up in hospital for two weeks. Social then said she needed 24 hrs care for 4 weeks when she comes out and advised a care home. She has now been in the care home for 5 days, and as kind as the people are in there it just seems wrong for her to be in there she has two little dogs at home that are missing her. Has anyone else experienced this and are there any other options.
