May I trouble you for comments on the following. My mother was in and out of hospital 12 times in a 6 month period with UTI’s falls and advancing Alzheimer’s. I complained as they were sending her home to danger without consulting me as she presented mentally quite well, but they were not aware that most of the things she was saying were just hallucinations. They were not listening to me and failed to have a meeting with me before discharging her. Her basement flat had a winding metal stair case and that is the only way she could get in or out and it was dangerous because she had a walking stick and needed a wheelchair to walk more than a very short distance, but she was not aware of this as in her mind she was at least 30 years younger and had no mental or physical conditions so she would just go out putting herself in great danger and getting herself in all sort of predicaments, like informing me she was going to the bank with some man, then drawing out money which was never seen again. Also nearly always losing her keys and having falls it was not safe for her to return home, but my views were ignored and she would be discharged then readmitted a day or two later I was even crying once when the doctor had promised a meeting with me, mum the doctors social services before they discharged her only to be told the following day there has been a change of plan and she is going home tomorrow. This without a meeting, sure enough she went missing for a period of time and they eventually presented herself back in hospital. She was in great danger. I would not mind if lessons were learnt from this, but the response I am getting back from them is ‘NHS England and the Alzheimer’s Society share an aim to reduce the number of people with dementia in a hospital care setting, due to the value of keeping them in a familiar environment ’ Surely the Alzheimer’s Society would not share the view that it is better for someone who has lost mental capacity and is in danger to themselves not only from self neglect but by negotiating stairs what were extremely dangerous she could only negotiate them going down them backwards holding on to the railings. Also chatting away to anyone in the street who could easily take advantage of her, and going out without her stick as she thought was some 30 years or so younger and had nothing wrong with her. I am just upset with them using the Alzheimer's Society of their excuse. Please could you give me your comments on the above?
