My mum is now living permanently in a care home which is excellent, the staff are wonderful, she goes out twice a week to an Age UK daycare centre and after months of battling with social services they finally agreed that she would be safer if she stayed in care permanently than if she went home with carers. The latest DoLS assessment has everyone in agreement that the care home is best for mum, but now someone from an advocacy charity is claiming that as mum's 'representative' she is going to go to the Court of Protection as mum keeps saying she wants to go home. I thought that Alzheimers sufferers did ask to go home because they want familiarity, even though in many cases (including my mum) they don't even know where 'home' was. Mum is settled in the care home until this woman goes to see her and starts talking to her about going home again and it really distresses her and upsets her but I seem to be powerless and all I can do is wait for it to go to court and hope that the judge decides the care home is the best place for her. I don't know how this can be allowed to happen when medical experts, social services, DoLS, the care home staff and all of her family feel that she is best off in the home. I have LPA Health & Welfare but this seems to be worth absolutely nothing as I've been told that I can't be mum's representative and it actually isn't worth the paper it's written on and I have no say at all in the decisions being made. Has anyone else had similar experience?
