Hi everyone. Mum is in the elderly care unit at the hospital until I can get the lift installed to take her upstairs. No one will give me a date for the lift, they wouldn't even give the MP I enlisted to represent me a date just said that we are high priority and in the next few weeks. My mum can't wait that long. She is refusing food, medications, and oxgen and is very frightened, I think she may be fretting for me as she never does any of these things at home and I can't get up everyday to see her as the hosp is some distance away, there are other complications with visiting too. In short, I can't always be there as I usually am. I have asked the nurse should I take her home, she said what back up do you have? What back up have I ever had, just me and dad. I will have to sleep her somewhere downstairs with dad but everywhere is pretty dangerous for a fall with fireplaces etc and steps into rooms. I don't know where to turn, I am constantly told to see my social worker I only have a CPN whom has had nothing to do with us and a temp care manager, the social worker of the ward just wants a date for the lift to get mum's bed, she's only been in there since Thurs. Should I just take mum home, but what do I do when the dirty week's work starts for the lift installation. I don't know where to turn. Why is no one helping me? Please advice someone quickly. I don't want mum to die up there.
