Really pleased and nervous to hear we now have a best interest meeting arranged for Monday Aug 10th for my Mum in nursing home. I am hoping to bring both Mum and stepfather to live with me. Mum has now lost her NHS funding and is living in an EMI unit in nursing home which is not suitable because of noise from other residents. My stepfather 84 yrs has now got heart problem and asbestosis and they live 130 miles away. Will be loads better for me to look after them here. Only problem I am up against is the ever so not helpful social services. I know they will not want Mum to move and the home do not want her to move. They will be arguing that I am inexperienced even though I have been a carer for 30 years and they will say she needs 2 carers all day long and what if she chokes and what if she falls ect. Need to get my plan ready. Does anybody know if they can stop me moving my Mum to be with me? Mum does not have capacity for complex issues but has capacity for daily stuff and she has never stopped saying she does not want to live there and Mum always says she wants to live down here.
