My mum,84, blacked out last night, fell, fractured her wrist. This isn't the first time. She lives with my dad who is 83. As well as dementia, she has lost sight in her right eye, with a cataract in the left. Her dementia hasn't been fully diagnosed because she's always, up to now, been canny enough to avoid the brain scan. I am going to see my mum later in hospital. I'm not sure what to do because I have the wildly different needs of 2 parents to consider. My Dad is bright, physically fit,still drives but has a world which is shrinking daily as my mum is increasingly unable to cope with anything beyond a proscribed, set routine. When she comes out of hospital, this will become worse. My mum - what care can she expect to receive? What is she entitled to? Will the hospital simply expect my dad to carry the burden? If anyone reads my post and can offer some words of advice before I set off mid-morning I would be very grateful.
