My mother in her 90's has been admitted into hospital like for 3 weeks (do not ask for story) she still has not been assessed by memory clinic. But psychiatric nurse has said the problem is undiagnosed ? Our family all believe it is dermentia. A doctor reported it to be Lewy Body, but did not confirm it or follow it up. Psychiatric nurse has definitely ruled it out, but is she qualified to say that? What position does that leave mum ?, as she does not have a diagnosis. Psychiatric nurse and social worker say she needs 24hr care in a home? with the only concern of not being able to get in and out of bed. Are they obliged to look at home care as an alternative, with all possible home alterations to accommodate her. She would be self financing for care, as she has money and house. What 'say' do I have in what happens to my mother. Would she be able to get 'NHS Continuing Healthcare' as she has problems with mobility, long term medical, mental disorder, behavioral and cognitive disorder. I need as much advice before meeting on Monday. As we would like to keep her at home, as she had an agreement with dad that they would never go into a care home. Do we have to respect her wishes.
