My relative has been in hospital for what seems like an eternity and this has left her immobile. I guess the hospital is trying the physio to try to get her moving again but has anyone had experience of this (a long hospital stay and getting mobile after a long period)? Is it even possible or does it depend on the dementia type and co-operation of the person involved? What are the possible outcomes? Is it inevitable she will end up in a care home / nursing home or would it be possible to apply for a council flat to suit our needs i.e. large wet room and ground floor? Does the council have a duty of care to provide us a flat with a wet room because we have someone with dementia? I guess the social worker will push for a nursing home as the 'easy option'.
