King's College Hospital asked Bexley Council to carry out an "older person's assessment", as they were worried about myfather. Bexley council Social Services phoned my father and asked him if he was OK. He said "yes", end of assessment, no further action was deemed necessary. This is a totally unsatisfactory way to carry out an assessment on someone with dementia. I asked for help from the local branch of the Alzheimer's Society, but when they responded 8 months later, my father had died.
