I wondered if anyone could give me some advice please. My grandmother is in a care home, she reached crisis point and, after a few abortive attempts, Social Services managed to 'persuade' her to stay there. Prior to that I had been trying for ages to get SS to see that she was vulnerable and at risk - she set fire to a piece of furniture at one point. The years leading up to crisis point were horrendous and she was manipulated and isolated for a while by a group of unrelated predators who insisted that they were her carers to SS when they were anything but. Thankfully, she is so paranoid about money that there were unable to get her to sign over Power of Attorney and last year I became her Property & Affairs Deputy and have since been improving her life as best I can. She has been very resistant to care of any sort, is very paranoid, makes threats that she will kill herself, kill others etc - but has so far not been physically aggressive although she is very verbally aggressive. She has absolutely no short-term memory, cannot remember any of her family at all or even the carers that she sees day-to-day. She is also blind in one eye and can barely hear. Her moods are very unstable and fluctuate from hour to hour and day to day, she quite often has to be sedated because she gets so distressed and she was on anti-psychotics for a while. She does not try to leave the care home but she wanders around the unit all day and all night, often not sleeping. She sundowns quite severely. She is considered a residential patient who is there of her own free will. The home has both residential and nursing care patients and my grandmother is in the locked dementia ward where there is at least one nurse on duty every day. Because of the way my Nan is she receives a lot of nursing care although, officially, she isn't charged for it so far. I am not too clued up on CHC funding but I read a couple of things on here the other day that suggested that if someone with dementia has certain behavioural problems then they might be eligible for CHC funding. Is that true please and can anyone point me in the right direction as to where I can find out? I am so busy firefighting the caring problems of looking after Nan that it can be difficult to keep up with everything else. She is self-funding. Thank you for any help given.
