You have all been very supportive [and probably bored rigid] when ever I've posted about Mum so I thought I'd off-load onto you all again.
Some of you will be aware that, three weeks ago, we moved Mum from one awful home to a much better one. As there was a question about Mum's behaviour she was there on a month's trial. This was the lesser of the two evils as the first home was appalling!!
During the past 3 weeks, Mum has become much less manageable and more and more prone to violence. She sometimes refuses to take any medication and often won't go to bed until 4 or 5 am. The final straw was on Sunday when Mum broke through a fire door and refused to come back in for an hour and forty minutes despite both my brothers going to help the staff. On Monday, the home gave us notice that they couldn't cope anymore. I have posted about the lack of response from the Consultant but, once Social Workers became involved, he did everything we wanted him to do and had her admitted to hospital for a complete reassessment.
We took her to a secure older person's mental health unit last night and, although we know it is the correct place for her, it was awful leaving her there. I dread going to visit her.
