My mum was admitted to hospital from a care home over three weeks ago and i was told 3 days ago that they have dealt with the infection. We are waiting for physio to hopefully get her moving again (she has been lying in bed mostly in the same position for the whole time but she was mobile in the Home). They also need to remove the catheter and get her bowels moving. The Home says they need to do a reassessment before she returns. Mum is eating very little now and I agreed with the drs not to put tubes into her to force feed. I managed to get a jelly and half a yoghurt down her today. She is drinking but only with a lot of help and not huge amounts but enough i think. The Drs tell me this is part of dementia but the decline has occurred while in hospital. I just think we need to get things moving but it's hard to get anyone to listen. Has anyone else been in this position. I fear this spell in hospital has led to a decline and i cant see her getting her mobility or appetite back. I think the hospital has given up on her but why can't tgey move forward on the discharge plan?
