You are right but unfortunstely, they would meet the needs with a different agency of their choosing, who would let me assist. No way would they fund 2 night carers when I am ready and willing to help and if I wasn't here, they would say nursing home.
Thanks for your reply and kind advice but the agency would already have double up calls. The carer who would drop in for the calls, would double up with the day carer, who would be here all day - 7am til 7 pm. The problem is, between calls, when Mum needs to be repositioned, needs a pad change, when...
My mum has CHC funding and I have recently asked if she can be transferred to a new agency. It is one we chose ourselves. The CHC have been negotiating with them to try and get them to lower their rate. Finally, yesterday it seemed like we were getting somewhere with the cost side of things but then...
I know we are lucky having the CHC package, when most people are turned down. We are also lucky, having finally been awarded funding for 24 hour care. It was a fight but we won in the end. I just thought some of you reading this and struggling to care for your loved ones on your own or with not enou...
Hello Greta and William Thank you very much for your replies and sorry I've taken a while to say so. Sorry also to hear of your experiences. Did the night carer prove to be good Greta? It's terrible what happened to you and your wife William. It feels like nobody really cares doesn't it? It's shocki...
Here I am again doing the night shift, (caring for Mum), because the agency doesn't have anyone to cover the night sitter who called in sick this evening. I know it was last minute but shouldn't agencies have bank staff? There are situations when carers have to leave there and then (that's happened ...
Does anyone know if we go private until the CHC finds a new agency (either with a homecare agency or the specialised nursing home), if the CHC funding will be withdrawn?

Even if the funding could go on hold, we can't get care in place by Monday. The short notice is totally unacceptable in my opinion.
Have they given you a specific cost of all that care at home? How does it compare to the care home of your choice? No, the CHC haven't told me how much the package of care at home would cost and I don't know the cost of the home. It was just a general enquiry I made a few weeks back. They said ther...
They do do rehab at the specialised home but they cater for all stages of neurological illness, right up to end of life care. They are a Sue Ryder home.
Even if they can't help her to walk again, it is the fact that they will recognise her problems and symptoms and will know what is going on when she has dyskinetic or dystonic attacks. They will know all the problems of Parkinson's Disease. They will understand the non-motor symptoms as well as the ...
