Hi again everyone. I’ll attempt to make this as short as I can. My mother (Who suffers from Alzheimer’s) was admitted into hospital, suffering from dehydration, about 8 weeks ago. On the day that she was due to go back to the care home where she has been for the last 7 months, I decided to phone social services to voice the families concern about the deteriation in her health, and to question whether sending her back was the best thing for her. Can I just say that we didn’t have a problem with the care home, in fact we feel that Mum was been cared for very well while she was there. We just felt that they could not give her the required attention that she now obviously needs. Thankfully ss reacted right away, and within the hour had sent someone to visit the ward to analyze the situation. They then phoned me to say that if I requested that she be re-assessed then they would keep her in hospital in the mean time. I of course agreed. 6 weeks later and she has been re-assessed. Now we have to attend a meeting at the hospital with Social Services and presumably medical staff. We are assuming that they are going to suggest various nursing homes where she could be located.? Social Services have hinted to my father that they will be funding whatever is required, because of Mums condition? To be honest, not having been through this before, we don’t really know what to expect? What questions to ask? What rights do we have? Etc. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
