"Hospital Feedback"

About: West Park Hospital

My mother is under the "Care" of a psychiatrist here, and they have deemed her fit to live at home. She lives at home by herself and has Alzheimers.

However my mother keeps walking in the dark, getting lifts from strangers to my house not hers, and walks passed her entrance, and just keeps walking. Despite several letters and meetings, and representations from Mums neighbours and police safeguarding referrals, they have decided these are not relevant and she stays where she is. Unfortunately we just keep picking up the pieces as we live a mile and a half away. Its staggering.
