My mum was admitted to the pysciatric hospital 3 weeks ago and has been sectioned. she has had alzheimers for 12 years. Anyway, the nurses have been great on the ward but the problems with her are:- 1. She refuses all help with personnel hygiene and it is taking 3-5 nurses to get her ready for bed and then she wonders around most of the night Some nights having no sleep at all. The mornings are slightly better with her getting herself dressed (with some help) she is great during the day, very pleasant and loving. 2. She is getting incontinent. We are waiting for an meeting with a social worker and doctor to see what there opinion is but the nurses have hinted that she probably would be better in a nusring home but they want to see if they can ger her more settled first. Well now my problem is my dad, he is convinced she will come home but I cannot see that. My mums sisters and myself have tried to explain to him that it is unfair on him and mum to come home because of her above problems but when I spoke to him today, after he had come back from visiting her, he is still talking as though she will come home. They have been married 54 years and I can see how he feels, it is as though she has died (but she hasn't) I feel as though I want to scream at him.
