<t>The problem is we are counted as a couple because we are married. Even if the room is for his sole use the council will only count us as needing one room because of this. We were sent a leaflet detailing the changes coming in April and the room will still be counted even if we sleep in separate r...
<t>At the moment the under occupancy rule doesn't effect me. I still have two sons living at home one is disabled. My husband needs a ground level bedroom which the council are in the process of getting sorted. They will build it onto our house. When this happens we will have a spare room and as dis...
Wanted to wish all at carers uk a merry christmas Also a big thank you to all the friends I have meet on this forum. 2012 has been a very difficult year for my caree and myself. At times I almost lost it but the friends on here got me through and kept me sane. THANK YOU ALL!

It showed a small amount of scarring to the frontal lobe which we already knew about. The scaring has not caused any damage that would cause any significant impair...
<t>No accessment of his continuing needs has been done as far as I am aware but there has been a lot of other doctors seeing him. We have never been informed when these other doctors are seeing or given an opportunity to meet with them to ask question. Further more I asked on tuesday when we has our...
<t>Thanks for all the advice. Was thinking of keeping a video record of my husband when we take him out as proof that he's ok with us. I keep my own notes at meetings. It makes the consultant stammer and nervous which gives a little bit of amusement. They haven't asked me not to make notes so I'll k...
