Hi all, my mum has been in care since January. The home is a residential home for the elderly but they take some dementia patients. There are 17 residents. When I went in this week at about 2.15 I couldnt find my mum and when I checked her room she was in bed with all her clothes on. She got up when she saw me but I noticed her clothes were wet so I told a member of staff, found some clean clothes pad etc. and the member of staff took her to get changed. She was very quick so couldnt have been washed in this process. The staff are all upstairs while many residents sit in the lounges downstairs. There is one particular lady who seems to upset other residents by constantly wandering and closing all the doors etc. My mum is a bit of a wanderer but doesnt seem to bother the others too much. There is also another lady, my mums friend, who is always with my mum. I have found her recently drinking her tea then going to the toilet filling the cup up with water which was not drinking water. On the whole I am happy with the home but every time I go all the staff (i.e 2) are upstairs oblivious to what is going on downstairs. There are buzzers which residents press if they need help but my mum certainly wouldnt remember how to do this. Does this seem right. My gut feeling is that there should be someone downstairs with residents at all times but maybe I expect too much. I admit I do seem to go when the staff are handing over but surely there should be someone supervising residents at all times. This has really been playing on my mind and I havent had a decent night sleep since. Should I be worried?
