    A belated welcome to the forum @Kingsbridge. Sorry your mum is not getting the care she needs or deserves at the care home. I have no experience of care homes, but having had to bring in outside carers at home I know how hard it can be to get consistency of good quality care.
    Have you raised the matter with the manager and asked to adjust the care plan so that the carers are more aware of your mum's needs and her condition? Sorry if you have already done so and it has not helped.
    You will find advice and support from others with more experience and knowledge, so keep in touch.

    I understand how you feel. It can be difficult to trust others to look after your loved one, and to see them in the care home environment. But it sounds as if things are going well from what the manager has said. As long as your mother gets help when she needs it, that is the most important thing.
