    Sorry I just need to vent here. My nan (who I care for) along with my mum we have kept her from being in a home for years we have always struggled but said we wanna keep her at home no matter how hard it is for us. My nan has dementia undiagnosed due yonher refusing a CT scan but her docs have said it’s dementia along with diabetes. Sometimes I have to drag my babies from bed under 2 year old due to my nans sugar being low. Me and my mum have gave up our lives for my nan for nearly 18 years now but we sail on due to her being at home and happy. She has a social worker cause we have carers 3 times a day. Today the carers notes said all day she didn’t feel like eating. My mum went in 7pm to check her sugar levels like she does every night and they were low. Nan refusing to eat so Mum called a ambulance not had to do that in a while. They said they were taking her in even tho nan refused they said they would get police and doc to section her cause her temp was low. We let them know this is normal and it will go up once sugar goes up they didn’t care ambulance lady was really rude she made my mum leave the house my mum who keeps my nan alive like me!! On the way out I said she won’t be home tonight will she she said not until social services are involved. I said they already are she said well they will be more involved now. I’m so upset she spoke to us like this and treated us like bad people due to us trying to keep nan from going to hospital as she was really upset. She even said mr and my mum couldn’t go in the ambulance due to our attitude even tho it was her being rude. Now they have took her to hospital. My nan would have been dead only for the amount of times mr and my mum have found her with low blood sugar levels

    Hi @Natashat
    I’m so sorry to hear about what happened tonight and can understand why you are so angry on both your own and your mums’s behalf :mad:
    I hope it has helped at least a bit to have been able to vent on here. I also hope you can get some rest tonight as it sounds as though you’ll have a busy day tomorrow.
    All the best to you, your mum and Nan
    Lindy xx
