my nan has had a social worker for her dementia for about a month or so. Initially we belived that things might move in the right direction once we had her on board. now it seems that she wants to pass everything back to us. i also severely doubt her knowledge of dementia. she called my grandparents this morning who gave her a very rosy view of the world. nan told her she was taking her medication, was planning to have a shower tomorrow etc etc. everything the social worker wanted to hear. Then the social worker sounded surprised to hear that this vision of their world wasnt true, surely she should know better than that?!?!?!?! She is also avoiding now talking to my nan about her respite placement coming up on bank holiday monday. when she talked to nan about it last week nan went mad, screaming and shouting and getting very aggressive. so now she told my mum she will not be bringing the subject up again as it upsets nan too much, but that we should keep talking to nan about it!!! what worries me most is that after seeing nans reaction about the respite she boldly said that she would arrange for nan to be sectioned. now a week on she is telling my mum that she wont be doing this and that we will have to force nan to go on the day. how on earth do we do this? sorry to rant and ramble on, feel better now. Hope everyone else's thursday's are going ok. thanks for listening.
