Mum is legally entitled to an assessment in her own right. Go to "Quick Links" top left, go to the main site, and search for "Carers Assessment". Or go to the LA's own website and see what it says there. Thanks so much BB. I'll have a look. I'm really struggling with my own health needs ATM. All ge...
Anyone? SS called today . Support worker. She was very reluctant to carry out even a carers assessment for Mum. " She'll have to have a financial assessment and you'll end up with 2 separate invoices. Better just to reassess Dad and increase his care package". At the time it didn't feel right but sh...

I can see benefits of joined up care for those with health issues but I don’t agree with the medical model of care for those with autism and/ or learning disability. Melly1 but OT's and nurses who work in rehabilitation don't (or shouldn't ) focus on the Medical model. I'm not saying they don't as ...
Hello Susan and Bowlingbun, I am so glad I read through your thread. I have just joined and feel like I'm falling slowly into this trap by moving 5 minutes from my 87 year old mother. Until 2019 I was living in France and just coming over for Christmas and summer but each time extending my stay, wh...
Are you on your local Facebook group? I've seen people say "Can anyone recommend a ..." and usually they get replies about who has been great. After all, if you dad needs an hour physio, that would be easy for a young qualified mum not currently working. It's the same with carers. Maybe put an ad i...
If you are sure dad has to pay for the care he receives, then you can do whatever you want. That means that he has over roughly £46,000 in savings. After I had a head on smash that nearly killed me, I had a private physiotherapist to help me recover from knee replacements, all paid for by the car i...
You sound well organised. Definitely get mum to have another test, then if positive it will mean she can have AA too, and Council Tax exemption, which I think means the won't pay anything at all. No one wants to admit to needing help, but it's what she needs, not wants, that matters now. The £46k i...

Hi & welcome Susan Just a quick reply ... I'll be back later. The carer doesn't get the whole fee. It's the agency's who take the large commissions etc. https://www.which.co.uk/later-life-care/home-care/organising-home-care/how-to-employ-private-carers-aszsg4j2q80m There is a lot more to getting yo...
