Hi all. I'm new here. My Mum has sub-cortical vascular dementia and is 'severe'. She is just about mobile but I don't think that will be for much longer - she couldn't even work out how to get out of the car today. The care home she's been in since October has now said that they can't cope with her any more and that I need to find somewhere else. Its like a needle in a haystack! Mum has her own home but its not a mansion and the proceeds will probably only last, say three years so she might outlast it. I need to find somewhere that will work for her, which isnt ridiculously expensive, which she won't be kicked out of when the money runs out, which is caring and where I feel comfortable visiting with my boys who are 2 and 5. I thought I'd found somewhere but they only have a room without a bathroom and her current home insist she needs her own. So its back to the drawing board. To be fair, there are a few which seem lovely (although most are expensive) but how do you know? Anyone got any top tips as to what to look for/what to ask? and can anyone give me their experiences of care homes in Sussex (good or bad) so I have a feel for what might be available? [I know that has to be via private messaging]. I don't mind travelling a bit if it's right.
