Caring for Mrs G
Mrs E contacted Cura Care when her mother, Mrs G, was in hospital.
Mrs G has Alzheimer’s and had fallen one day when she was out. There had been several occasions where neighbours had seen Mrs G out on her own and Mrs E faced the dilemma that she was concerned for her mother’s safety but was not in a position to have her mother live with her and didn’t want to put her in a home.
Mrs E contacted us and we met her whilst her mother was still in hospital to discuss possible care options. We talked about the possibility of her mother moving into a home but Mrs E knew that her mother would not want this and she was under pressure from the rest of the family for this event not to arise.
After discussing the options available, Mrs E decided live-in care was the most attractive as it minimises the disruption to Mrs G's life. Mrs G still gets to stay at home and is still able to go out and about in Richmond as before but now Mrs E has the peace of mind that her mother is escorted by Amy, her carer.
