Dear Talking Point. My Mum (85) is in a small CH since early Jan, after month in hospital. Before that she was living at home, refusing carers. Because she refused help from everyone, including me, she probably ended up in CH maybe 6 months or so little too early . She has middle stage alzheimer's and physically fit. Mum loves walking and getting out such as walking into town. All her life, when she was 'bored', she always went out which made her feel better. This was more important after my Dad died and she was on her own. In the CH, she is getting out for a small accompanied walk every day or two when staff are available. Now that weather is good the residents can sit outside in small garden Mum wants even more to go out walking on her own. I think that she will not get lost in local vicinity during the daytime. It seems such a shame to 'keep her in' when she is probably still capable just for this summer perhaps. But it is a difficult one because CH want to make sure she is safe and that means watching her 24/24 plus she could hop on a bus etc. On the other hand, Mum is so much better company and happier when she gets a good daily walk. It is really good therapy for her. I wondered if anyone had experience of using tracking devices for CH residents or any other experiences with these devices. This was suggested few months ago by Community MH nurse so would be managed by local authority. No experience of these in Mum's CH so I was wondering if there were any examples out there or any other ideas.
