Hi all I posted a few months back. My mother died in August in a home. She’d been there for 5 years following a brain haemorrhage which then developed into advanced dementia.
In February 20 she was discharged from hospital back to the residential home. I tried to have her moved to a nursing home, she was 5 stone, doubly incontinent, no communication - terribly Poorly and frail. The consultant said she was at the end of her life . Covid came I never saw her after.
On the day she died the GP refused to come out, there was no JIC box In the home and as he was a locum GP he didn’t have them either, he sent a script to the chemist that was closed for lunch - she had a traumatic death. I have found out that in June a doctor had advised to reduced fluid and terminal decline was likely. That makes me feel worse as no one told me and no one made sure the support was there ( as in JIC box)
I’m just thinking should she have had CHC and could we apply retrospectively. Please don’t think this is about money, her small house has been left to her grandchildren ( 5 of them ) , I’m executor of the Will and we have a £35,000 debt to pay. This all seems to wrong but I’m not sure I have energy to fight for nothing. The reason she was in a hime is id had serious surgical complications , I have 3 stoma bags , I never complained and I regret it maybe my anger is displaced but my mothers situation is horrific.
Has anyone got any advice please ?
