After a 3 month spell in hospital my mum has been put on medication for Alzheimer's although she hasn't had a formal diagnosis. While she was in hospital she was very confused and kept wandering. The hospital said she couldn't live on her own so she moved into a residential care home on their advice. She isn't happy and wants to move back home. She says she is lonely and bored but she won't mix with anyone at the home although she likes the staff and they like her. Social services have recently been in contact with her and after talking to her for 30 minutes have deemed she is ok to live in her own home, with the support packages if they deem them necessary, despite my brother and I voicing our concerns on several occasions. I am trying to find out as much as I can so that I know how to make sure my mum is safe and has the best care. We don't feel mum will be safe living on her own and feel Social Services are ignoring us. Can they put mum back in her own home against our wishes? What can we do about this? They keep mentioning deprivation of liberty and feel she is aware enough to decide she wants to go back home.
