1. Does anyone know if Social Services would provide a wheelchair free of charge so that we can get my MIL out of the house a bit more? 2. Does anyone know about camera systems that you can install to check whether MIL is taking her medication as she lives on her own? I know it is an invasion of privacy but I would rather know if she is taking the correct tablets and if so when. 3. My MIL needs a knee replacement but the local hospital consultant has refused to do it as she is on three lots of medication for blood pressure, she has had a stroke about three years ago, they would not accept her consent signing the form as she has mixed dementia Alzheimer's and Vascular and she would probably forget to do the exercises afterwards as she lives on her own and would also not cope well with the after pain. The consultant also mentioned that the anaesthetic would also probably cause more memory loss. I am assuming this is all true or is he just trying to fob us off!
