Hello all , oh I am so worried now . The hospital where Mum is have telephoned to say there will be a meeting to assess Mum and her progress ? and her future, its on Thursday so I shall go up by train . My sister and I are really worried because the dementia unit she is currently in is only for a maximum of 6 weeks to assess the patient and we are terrified that they will send her home . My step Dad is 87 years old , he is very frail and simply cannot take care of Mum now , she needs lots of attention , is very confused , hardly eats , doesnt sleep well and quite honestly, is making little sense right now . Thing is, he wants her home again , he misses her like mad and we are really scared that he will insist on her return . Last time this happened , Mum was allowed to go home and a care package was put into place but , running true to form, after a week or so , Mum refused to allow the carers into their home , even refused access to the psyciatric nurse and we just know that this is what will happen again . Oh dear , I dont know who to feel sorry for most but I think it has to be step Dad Ken , he is distraught at her being away and I seriously dont think he realises how very ill Mum is , he keeps talking about " when she is well again " .
