MIl had a CT scan on 17/10 being chasing all and sundry for the results so has SW who wnated formal diagnosis as working diagnosis of AD and possibly some vascular only thus far. Memory clinic nurse confirmd in a letter after visit whenMIL agreed to scan back in June stating that after scan she would visit to discuss results and use of cognitive enhancing medication. MIL(she lives with us) is at SIL for her birthday 91 last week and has visited the doc there due to an infected cut on her leg, . We received an email from Memory C nurrse today saying sorry for the delay in replying but she was aware MIl has started medication and that she heard she had moved to Suffolk (SIL live there)! No medication not moved visiting ; can only assume that GP here have told Memory nurse this as SIL GPs had contacted then re: infected leg However tonight text from SIL that found new box of Donepezil on MIL table where have they come form??? After investigation and deduction one of the packets which we forwarded a couple of days ago with birthday cards for MIL was NOT a present but said pills, no letter canbe found accompanying them, though MIl is a squirreller no hospital franking or printed address label hence us thinking it a present addressed to MIL so not opened by us. I am furious , no visit from nurse , tablets sent via post to a person with dementia with no consultation explanation or discussion of side effects etc. SW and nurse think MIL has capacity so why are these tablets just sent with no consent to take them by MIL?The NHS at its worse -with potential dangerous consequences. A few phone calls will be made tomorrow, they won't like what I have to say. Could anyone elightened me on the pluses minuses of Donezepil as it is obviously too much to ask of a health professional to do? so.
