Respite care following emergency hospital admission

Mrs K’s mother was ready to be discharged from hospital after an emergency admission, but Mrs K was advised that it was unsafe for her to go home. Living 30 minutes away and with three small children, Mrs K didn’t know how to begin to find a home for her mother herself – and was feeling pressurised by the hospital to come up with an answer quickly. We applied our expertise to find local homes that matched Mrs K’s mother’s requirements and funds, visiting them to produce a shortlist of three for Mrs K to visit, from which she chose one that suited her mother perfectly. Chosen With Care saved Mrs K days of searching, and gave the whole family confidence that they had done the very best for their mother.

"Chosen with Care became my lifeline as they helped me find some desperately needed respite care. The care home was so perfect that when I could no longer cope I was happy for Joan to move in permanently."

At Chosen with Care we want to inform families, before there is a crisis, about the issues that need to be considered when you are looking for a care home. At a recent care event that we organised, we talked about everything to do with care. At the event we spoke to a lovely couple and received this testimonial - 'My Mum spoke to me for quite a while on Sunday, to say how impressed she had been and how glad they were they had gone along. Both my Nanna and Grandma had dementia before they died and my Uncle has it now. They did not know about the affect small strokes have on developing Dementia and following the advice they received, my Dad is going to attend his doctors and demand an MRI scan, as he had a stroke about a year ago. Thank you from myself as well, this has been really helpfully for my parents.' Jonathan H.
