Ok so.... Mums carer decided she couldn't continue and gave 1 days notice ,the social worker then decided it was time for mum to go into a home. mum has since been in a home since December and it's been awful. We always knew it was going to be tough but she's like a different person now. She has been so angry which we expected but so distressed, she hardly sleeps and basically is a stranger. The home have requested 2 mental health assessments and at the last one over a month ago they switched her to nursing emi, increased the respiridone and agreed to apply for one to one care for her. within the last couple of weeks both myself and my brother have commented on how we have found mum a lot more chilled out, no more angry eyes and short words. On Saturday mum was smiling and asking me what I've been doing instead of the accusations of not loving her and keeping her locked away. I've just had a call from mums cpn to say that mum is very unwell and it's time for her to be taken away to the mental health hospital for 24/7 care. Aparently mum is being so distressed and hearing voices saying they want to kill her, she said she was psychotic . I'm so confused with the whole thing, I've had phone calls about deprivation of liberty (does that just mean that the home can keep mum there against her will?) And calls about signing forms regards to mums finances. I've not had a call from social worker about CHC assessment so doubt very much one has been done.The care home have told me nothing about voices, when I've mentioned that mum seemed much calmer they simply state that she wasn't earlier as she was trying to escape through a window or she was kicking the door trying to get out. The cpn says with the 24/7 care they will assess mum and get her medication right so she isn't so distressed. That's what I want isn't it? So why am I so upset? The mental health assessment is taking place on Friday, the local gp has already stated he wants to increase the respiridone but the consultant thinks the 24/7 assessment is better in the long run. My brother and I didnt want mum to go into a care home as we thought it wasn't right for her. Since she's been there we have a complete stranger instead of our mum I just wish I knew the answers because I just don't know who to trust to do the right thing for my mum.
