Mum has been back home with me for 2 weeks now after being in intermediate care. There has been such a dramatic change in her from before she went into hospital back in November. She has lost all mobility, needs me to give her all food and drinks and sleeps much of the time. We have had to move her from an upstairs bedroom into a downstairs room. I have to say the help I have had from the GP, Admiral nurse, district nurses and social services has been brilliant though. I feel lucky that I have had lots of support especially after reading some of the posts on here. We have 4 visits a day for personal care. Mum is self-funding but Social Services pay for 1 of the carers as she needs double handling. We have been supplied with a hospital bed which was delivered this morning. Mum is in it now and looks so much more comfortable. District nurses are coming in every other day as Mum has a pressure sore. They are sorting out different inco pads as Mum used to use the pull-ups which are no longer suitable. I’ve also put a DNAR in place and had a key safe fitted. My head is in a whirl! I’m sure things will settle down and I’ll get used to the new normal but to think Mum was going to a day centre, memory cafes and the hairdressers just 2 months ago and is now completely bedbound is a lot to get my head around!
