Some doctors don't know as much as they should about Fast Track Continuing Healthcare. Once they apply, it should all be arranged within 48 hours.

If you know her name, complain to the Nurses Registration body.

I'm concerned that money is an issue for you.
Is mum getting Attendance Allowance?
Google this. It would enable you to be paid whilst caring for mum.
In 2004, I proposed a motion at the AGM, that Carers Allowance increased to equate to minimum wage. It was passed almost unanimously. I am disappointed at the lack of progress. However, since then, lots has changed. The 2014 Care Act said that everyone needing support was supposed to be entitled to ...
It is NOT up to mum to choose whether or not to have a sitter!
It's YOUR choice when you are or are not going to care for her!
