"Depression waiting on hospital services"
Posted by Jonjam (as ),
My mum had a stroke and was discharged from hairmyres hospital in June. My wife attended a meeting while she was in Hairmyres and was assured a stair lift would be in place in 12 wks. My mum has been discharged and the south lanarkshire council have now told us the earliest time may be Jan 2017. My mum is now suffering from depression and says constantly in front of my son she would be better off dead my son is 13. Her mobility has also deteriorated as she is confined to one room. This is modern Scotland. She also has no alert yet which she has been referred for as an emergency. How is she supposed to get down the stairs if there is a fire or takes unwell and is unable to contact anyone?
