Hi I wonder if anyone can advise me. My mother has alzheimer's and still has a good level of understanding with regards to what is happening to her at that present moment, although she will have forgotten 5 minutes later. She has been admitted to hospital following a fall, but has no breaks, she is not able to climb the stairs and so the hospital would not allow her to go home with my father. The hospital decided last night to discharge her into a care home where the hospital had spot purchased a bed. This move is supposed to enable the local authority to send in Physio to assist in her rehabilitation. Because she has reasonable comprehension of where she is, she was very distressed to find herself in home where the patients have very advanced dementia. We had no say at all with regards to the choice of care home and because the hospital are funding it under rehabilitation I don't know if I can move her. We were advised 2 weeks ago by her Social Worker that unless she agreed to go into a care home of our choice to give my father some respite, then we could not force her, it appears ironic then that the NHS can and into an unsuitable care home too. Can anyone advise please.
