Hello mum has recently moved into a care home after a period of months when we tried all other living arrangements we could think of to cope with her alzheimers, none of which worked. She is not settling well and it is so hard trying to keep some perspective on what is possible, and what is the best place for her. One extra worry at the moment is that we now dont seem to get any information and views from external agencies and professionals. Moving to a care home means a new GP but he or she has not contacted us to let us know how things are. The consultant (a different one to the one we had before) has been in and taken of off aricept, but we dont know why. Her current MMSE score has not been communicated to us. There is now no contact with any social worker or community mental health team. Its like being cut adrift as though now she is safely stored away out of the community in a home there is not need to bother any more. Who should be contacting us re assessments and evaluations? shouldnt the change in drug regime (which seems to involve more tranquilisers) have been discussed with family members?
