Hi my LA are currently looking for a care home for my dad. My father has late stage dementia and is currently in hospital. The LA are sending care home managers to the hospital to assess my father without telling me. He has been assessed by two Care Homes that I know about. I wasn’t informed the assessments were happening nor was I invited to attend. Are they allowed to do this? My dad won’t understand what’s happening and I think it’s wrong he doesn’t have me there representing his interests. He has been really sick and was given the last rights in hospital last Saturday so he is extremely frail. I don’t seem to have any control over what they are doing and it’s really distressing. I am my dads only relative, my mum lives with me and also has dementia. I want to have a say in my fathers care but the LA are totally excluding me!
