Ok... Today my mother had a mental comprehension test with her SW and the MHT, this was following the other night escapades of potential wandering off session and asking other residents to call her a cab so she could go home. The SW asked her many questions, and it ended up with my mum saying that Don (my dad) being her child, and me being her grandchild she supposes. I had a word with them all, away from my mum, and I told them how it was and is, and then they went to see my mother, who was very agitated and a bit confused, and told everyone to P off as she wanted to be left alone and didn't want all this bother. It was determined by the SW that my mum has no mental comprehension, but she's coming back next week to do another next and the week after just to make sure. She still had to put in before she left tho, that the office of the public guardian would be deciding whether to strip me of my power of attorney or not and they'll be in touch. I now know to be total BS by the SW, it's not an easy process and takes bloody ages, so I'm trying not to panic and worry about it too much. It's looking very likely that she'll be put into a care home, have I got rights what care home they put her in and where, because I'm looking at local ones in and around Poole because they are local and take on SS elderly, even tho they are private, the SW is trying to push a care home in Swanage onto me, as she seems to think the one I have my eye on in Poole is not prepared to accept or be suitable for my mother, because my mum may cause problems and won't go easily and she said they don't have the restraints to deal with someone like my mum??? I mean what do they think she is .... She's 4,5, 83, frail, can't see very well and has dementia, like what trouble can she make that warrants restraints exactly. I just don't want her put into any care home, and miles away, as I don't drive, and it will be difficult me going to see her, the stupid SW has made me worried now that I'm going to lose my POA, so I'm scared, I'll have no rights, and they'll be able to do what they damn well like. By the way, I am not the sole POA, there are two of us! And that hasn't been bought up, so I'm not sure if there aware or not, but it may go in my favour. It's all the threats I hate, and the way I'm treated just because this years been a pig and I've got into arrears with the rent and social care, I feel like they've made me the criminal, and I'm not.
