My mother is in hospital in South London, and after assessment, I've been told it would dangerous for her to be allowed to return home and that I need to find a residential care placement for her in my own area (I'm 80 miles north). Her local social services have very quickly provided lists of homes in their area (kind, but not helpful). My own local services can only tell me to contact CSCI - is this right? Having tried carehomes.co.uk, csci.org.uk and bettercare.co.uk, each site gives me a different listing of homes in the area. Given I'm in fulltime work and its almost impossible to make calls from here, how do I get a listing of contacts for suitable homes (residential care without nursing, catering for dementia) so I can attempt to contact them as best I can? Any thoughts would be very welcome - this is stressful enough time without running into what appears to be a less than helpful SS dept.
