My aunt's care home has recently started visits in a garden room through glass with a top window open. They work quite well even though she has limited vision and hearing. I hope your Mum's care home can come up with something like that.
There is just something wrong with the present system Penny. Good to hear the FHP will be wearing full PPE though.
I wonder what the NHS chiropodists will do AJ. They can't leave people forever.
My 91 year old aunt's care home has been in lockdown for weeks yet now a chiropodist is having to visit because carers won't cut my aunt's toenails.

Or visit the Benefits and Work site for advice on how to appeal. Don't give up - lots of bad decisions are being made at t...
Well we had a bit of a talk about her having carers, and the strain on us. We've also completed the Attendance Allowance form (what a marathon that is!) Then a few days later I received a large cheque from my aunt, thanking me for what I do for her. It is lovely of her, and much needed, but now I fe...
You must stick to your plan Sarah. It really is awful. If you are clearly handing over responsibility to someone else then it is not not not your fault is something goes wrong. You have done your 'bit' -over and above. It's someone else's turn now.
