MIL going into a nursing home tomorrow. Long story - emergency - no choice - may be short term measure while we sort out an alternative. We have been shocked at the cost. £1500 per week. If she stayed there we would have to sell the house before the year was out. It would be cheaper to employ two live in carers! She has had one live in carer for the last year but now requires a hoist and needs two people to operate. Apparently a ceiling mounting hoist only needs one person so thinking we should have this fitted and go back to live in carer route. Does anybody have any experience or any advice to offer?
