Mum went in to hospital last Sunday, after a very sudden decline into mental confusion and serious ocd behaviour.( 4 weeks ago she had only mild recall problems, nothing more than usually expected for a person of 83) She hss been treated for a urine infection and is on a genito urinanry ward, but her mental health is still declining and today she is having hallucinations for the first time. Before being admitted she could manage to walk a little with her walking frame from the lounge to the toilet at home and used the toilet unaided. Now she is no longer walking, she has a commode by the bed and it is taking 2 people to lift her on to the toilet. So the plan is to move her to a rehab hospital and then I imagine some sort of care home, although Dad desperately wants her home. Now I have asked for a mental health assessment, on the basis that we cannot decide what is best for her care if we have no idea of what is wrong with her. She is down to have a CT scan of the brain, but she is absolutely refusing any further treatment - she won't let the physios do anything, can't take her temp etc. I am really worried that the NHS will say ok, we have offered treatment, she has refused, so we can't do any more for her, now find a care home and take her away. Anyone else had this problem, if so, how do you get a patient to accept treatment. I don't want her discharged without knowing that I have done everything to get her the right help.
