apparently we are down as really urgent now following my call last week but all that means is we could be seen by the urgent (!) response team in another two weeks. Mum is practically bed ridden now. Legs & feet extremely swollen. Trying to get district nurse out but have to go through the GP. Everything takes so long & needs chasing up. & each bit of the problem is dealt with by a different team. It’s like being in a Kafka novel. As mum’s deteriorated her need for personal care has increased. I can’t give her the level of care she needs & deserves. But with an assessment still some weeks off we have to muddle through & I have to watch my mother decline. The incontinence team dropped off forms over a week ago. No name or number left & no ones been back to collect them. So I’ll have to chase that as well. How do you all cope? Mum’s lived with me for the last 15 years & we only had help once after a fall. At 90 she needs better care. This morning she was confused so that could be a uti. Can’t get a sample as every time she uses the commode she passes a motion. Sorry for the rambling rant but feeling very inadequate today.
