Went to see Mum in CH this morning. They had got her dressed and put her in wheelchair before I arrived, but she wanted to go back to bed. There she was lying in bed talking utter gibberish and saying she wants to die. She seems to have gone downhill rapidly and yet the home is wonderful. I explained to her that its better for her to be out of bed, she can chat to other residents, have her hair done and maybe her appetite will come back. She was having none of it. Must admit she looked absolutely dreadful, and kept saying what's happening to me. The senior nurse came in and said when your ready I have some forms to go through with you. I went round to her office. The first thing she said was there is no way your Mum can go home, even though she wants to, she's very poorly. Then we completed the end of life plan for Mum. Is this normal procedure when you first go into a CH, or are things moving along quicker than I imagined? Any comments welcome. Sue.
