Ricky, my mother has a Dementia, lives in her own home so we receive no assistance from the local authority whatsoever, since November my mother has been admitted into hospital 3 times. During the time in hospital my mother has always received exemplary care, no problem there, however when the time came to being released a Social Worker was appointed, she was nice enough but just wanted to tick boxes, everyone I came in contact with wanted me to get extra care for my mother, this would have been at our expense, and following discussions with the people currently looking after my mother it was decided that the care I have in place is adequate at this point in time. I am lucky that I am in a position whereby I can afford to keep my mother living in her own and will continue to do so for as long as it is possible. Yes I agree someone has to pay and perhaps not the local council, Government needs to do more after all benefits seem to be easily accessible to all and sundry but not for dementia sufferers, I hope that at some stage in the future this changes and Government accept responsibility in the meantime I will continue to do whatever I can to keep my mother in her own home and to be honest it is also cheaper for me pay for home care rather than Residential care.
