My mother in law suffers from vascular dementia she is bedbound and double incontinent. Since her admission to the Care Centre (home) in February 2016, three DOLS assessments have been undertaken. Continuity of the DOLS authorisation has been ensured as the new one has started on the annual anniversary date in mid-July. The vascular dementia has progressed year on year so a DOLS authorisation is 'technically' still needed. However the current DOLS authorisation of 12-months expired in July. For the readers information - we are self funding, hold Lasting Power of Attorney for Heath and Welfare (as well as Property and Finance) and have been the previous relevant persons representative (RPR) for the DOLS. We have confirmed with the Care Centre when they made the DOLS assessment review request, this was in April and last week contacted the Safeguarding Adults Service Manager asking when the DOLS will be undertaken? There has been no response. Is there anything else we could or should do?
