Few meetings today about my mums nursing home. I instigated a spot check on the home ....found wanting in some areas....spoke with social services about my mums care, spoke (very forcefully) to care home manager and others.
Amazingly one carer spoke of her lovely chat earlier with my mum. That's interesting, I said, comsidering my mums hearing aid is missing. Without it mum cannot hear. The face on the home manager was a joy to behold as she realised the nonsense that had just been uttered. My anger was tempered by self control but I made my points
It was clear to me that dementia patients...and my mum may well be on the way but not there yet......are regarded as not worth a great deal.
My mum has been in this home for just a few days and already several causes for concern. I think a better home will be found for my mum amd her physical and mental health will be re assessed.
