Admitting client to dementia care

Hi Sheila,

My sister in law's mother has a UTI and is acting very different to her normal self. She has tried getting her mother into a normal first stage dementia home but nobody seems to want her.
Should she ring her local council and ask for a Care Manager to sort things out?

Please help she is desperate, thanks.

Anne.

Dear Anne,

In these circumstances I would think that she should contact the Adult Social Care of her local Council who should be able to help.

When her GP has treated the UTI, I would fully expect her to revert to her normal self.

Best wishes,
Sheila
