Mum is 89 and has mixed dementia. She was discharged from hospital to a care home 3 years ago, the decision taken out of my hands. The funds from her house sale depleted & after a stressful assessment procedure her care is partly covered by the council. I am mum’s sole surviving child after both my brother & sister died 10/12 years ago. My mum has needed me for the last 14 months but she has been locked away. I doubt I will recover from the damage the prison like experience has caused.
