Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first
Has your mother ever signed a Lasting Power of Attorney?
Have you spoken to the hospital?
Have you called the hospital and asked?
They would not confirm which ward she was on?
That is odd
Can you attend in person?
When was your mother last living with you
Have you spoken to the GP and asked for help?
Have you actually spoken to them?
As do I
Yet I have arrived at hospitals and been told at reception which ward my relative was on.
Additionally I have spoken to my elderly parents GP and sought advice and assistance - all within the confidentiality rules.
These are the options that you have - either in person or by phone contact the hospital and express your concerns.
Ask to speak to the Hospital Social worker and explain what has happened and ask them to speak to your mother
Ask the local external Social Services to speak to her if she has now left hospital.
Please ask if you need further details
