My 89 year old Mother is self funding (due to run out in a year) in a CH and has advanced Alzheimer's. She has Diabetes, is now doubly incontinent and has lost the use of the legs (despite help from a physiotherapist) and is now permanently bed bound or in a wheel chair. The home manager is worried that they will not be able to look after her any more as they do not have a hoist, and constantly having to move her for pads, prevent bed sores etc is very difficult for the staff. I am trying to find out if she would be eligible for Continuing NHS Care before she is moved to a NH, but so far, after endless 'phone calls I feel I am being bounced from pillar to post. Her GP insists that the review process is initiated by Adult Social Care, who say it is the Cont. Care team, but on contacting them they say it is her GP who does first fills in the form. Before I go back to him again, does anyone else have experience of this and hopefully can offer advice on the mystifying process of applying?
