]Further to my first post saying that we were advised by father in law's social worker that we were not to travel or enter father in law's house, but no reason given, except that we were not following travelling guidelines BUT we were. My husband and I know the guidelines inside out by now and that ...
Hi Forgot to write, that there is no other family visiting him as, our 2 sons and daughter were also going to be travelling up in separate cars are they are not in the same bubble as each other and we all live 200 miles away. We were warned from safeguarding that no other family member were allowed ...
Hi Thankyou for all your replies. Melly, yes he does live in his own home and no, he doesn't have a continuous cough as we have done two video calls since, didn't hear even one cough over the 15 minutes calls. Yes, we do think the owner of the care team did phone the social worker as no one else kne...
My husband and I have formed a support bubble with my father in law since 22nd December 2020. We were fostering before and child has now gone back to his mums.

The care workers had to write time of arrival and time finished. The ...

At long last my local hospital authority has stated that they have in the last month changed set visiting to flexible visiting to suit, family, patient and friends. The hospit...
Hi Sharon. I am so sorry that your Mum has died. My mum too died about 5 weeks ago. It is and has been an emotional time for me. You have 5 days to register the death but it can be extended if the Registrar agrees. You could also ask the Registrar if they do the 'Tell us once' contact to the benefit...
Hi I am not sure what the 'risk' could be? Is it to do with personal care? My mother had toileting care and wash down 'below' from both male and female care workers, and neither she was bothered who did it (as long as they were kind and gentle) and neither did the care workers have any problems. But...
Hi Jacqui Has your husband had a review from the agency recently? If this is a new request for care workers then the agency needs to be informed, so that an up to date care plan can be done for your husband by the agencies care plan organiser or assessor- with you there of course, to explain. I am s...
