Thanks everyone, helpful advice for me to think about

Hi all, just wondering if anyone has experience of using shared lives service in place of residential care? How does it work and how to access this?

Thanks in advance

There is no way this is acceptable, a proper assessment should be made to get someone down stairs, not expect staff or family to muddle through. What if there was an accident , heaven forbid. The care home owners should have sorted this out a long time Ago, have you approached social services or the...
Hi, yes I have my own place so mums will have to be sold to pay for her care, I spoke to a solicitor about this and have to get it on the market to get the best price.

Thanks everyone, I am going to refuse as you say, I am not able to help mum as she has unresolved mental health issues which they will not recognise or address. I am left to deal with her outburst and aggression but I can't carry on any longer.

I will be strong,
Hi all I posted last week re unsafe discharge, mum was not discharged on Friday and how lucky she was. Her flat was burgled that night and ransacked.
