I'm so sorry, but I need to let off steam. My Mum is now totally immobile. I got a call from the district nurse this afternoon to say that even two people can't get my Mum on her feet. She had wet herself and was very distressed. She called the out of hours doctor who called for an ambulance. I believe they were thinking of getting her assessed to find out why she can't stand up. I've just called my Mum and was told the ambulance man wanted a word. He is refusing to take my Mum to hospital because she doesn't have a medical condition. I've been arguing with him, but he says A&E will just send her straight home. I can't believe they could do this to an 84 year old woman with angina, end stage renal failure and Alzheimers. Yes, it may be a care problem, but until they can get a hoist into my Mum's place, there is nothing they can do for her. I've phoned the out of hours service who are getting a doctor to speak to the ambulance crew. What with her own doctor refusing to come out when called by the carers and the care manager, I just don't know where to turn.
