Hello Does anyone know what the complex criteria is for continuing care? My Mum was assessed for this on 21st August, before she was taken off the aricept and did not meet the complex criteria. They want to move her to an emi nursing home very soon, which we are currently looking at. I think my mum has got worse since this last assessment was done and is currently not given any drugs for her AD, apart for a calming tablet and sleeping pill. I think she needs to be re-assessed for continuing care but SS have said different. I have a meeting with the doctor and SS next week and think i will be in for a rough ride with them, as i recently sent a letter to the consultant asking about this and why is can't she be given Exbia as she is in the moderate/severe stages of the illness. Does anyone know what the complex criteria is? I know i will have pressure from the consultant and SS next week to find my mum a home to go into as they want her out of the assessment unit, i have been to look at one home so far which was really nice and i got a good feeling about. i have a sister who really has not done a great deal and is going in for a major op on Monday which means she will out of action for a while which means i will have more pressure on me, i have got to have a minor op on the 5th nov as well. I work full time and then i go and see mum every other night of the week, (my sister and i have taken it in turns to do every other night between us) so with her out of action will mean i will be up at the hospital every night, there is just not enough hours in the day to get everything done. I feel very much alone in my battle as all i want is the best for my wonderful mum who i love and adore. Some days i just want to curl up in a corner and hope all of this will go away, but then i try and pick myself up and force myself to cope with another day for my Mum's sake.
