My Mother has just passed away at 92 and was quite shocked when I collected the Death Certificate as it shows that she died of "Advanced Dementia and Frality Syndrome"
Prior to being admitted to Hospital approx 4 weeks before she passed,she lived in a Residential Home for about 7 Years and although they had been struggling with her to Eat and take her Medication, the word Dementia had not been mentioned or referred to. It took a visit from ourselves to get the local GP to call and admit her to hospital where she remained until her Death.
My thoughts now are could she have received better treatment that would have dealt with this ?
Any advice would be gratefully accepted.
