Does anyone know if it's right that dementia patients won't be fitted with stairlifts by Occupational Therapy? We have been denied it because of mum's dementia and told just to move her bed downstairs. Don't they think she's had enough upheaval in her life, she's been in that bedroom 40 years and is familiar with it. (Obvioulsly not in it in a Norman Bates sort of way! She does come out) Is a through the floor life banned as well? (Did anyone spot the Freudian slip there! I meant lift.) Does anyone know? It's been mentioned by an OT before, but of course, no follow through.
