Hi Please can someone help me with this dilemma. My mother was diagnosed with dementia 3 years ago and has been cared for at home with the help of family and carers. My mother lives in a housing association home and my brother and I have been spending more and more time staying with her, sleeping overnight etc. We feel her being at home is best for her because she is surrounded by her family. However, someone has informed the Housing Association that my brother is living there. He received a phone call from the HA and told them that my mum now needs more support from her family and he stays with her most days and some evenings. He was then informed 'We'll have to put your mother into residential care. She also asked if he had any belongings or clothes their. When he said yes, he was told 'you will have to move your belongings out by Friday 8th May. We have just received a letter telling us that they will be visiting on Friday to see if we have followed their instructions. The HA, hospital, Social Worker have been aware of the situation ie, that we stay there taking turns to look after our mother. We both own our own homes but our homes our not suitable for her to live there, stairs etc. Can anyone advise us please? I would be so grateful for your advice Sue?
