Hi all. My mum has early stage Alzheimer's and lives in housing association flat in Cardiff. Her partner has recently passed and the dementia has worsened since this. No family are close as we all live in Bristol (approx. 1 hour away). She wants to move to Bristol to be close to family and we have looked at assisted living accommodation for her. The issue is that as she isn't currently living in Bristol the city council cannot deal with the request for her to move as this needs to come from Cardiff. The Cardiff social worker has been to assess mum and says she doesn't have sufficient support needs as she has shown that she is capable of making a meal etc and can be supported at her current flat! Although she is capable of cooking she leaves the oven on and often doesn't bother and is living on cuppa soup so is losing weight dramatically. She is also so confused and lonely. Has anyone any advice on how we move this on. She wants to be in Bristol and will be able to pay for her accommodation but Bristol City council cannot deal until Cardiff agrees to move her over?
