This is the entire problem, when the cart is broken, who cares? Can you change doctors or not? No; we are stuck to the same ineffectual psychiatrist, who can only delegate to another, but who stays in-charge. I realize that the Mental Health Act has been amended to place more power in the patients ...
Can you find another doctor or not? I agree. I hated my brother’s first ever urologist from the outset. I wrote a polite email and copied in the head of department as well. This is a national issue. The newspapers might be interested. Sell it as a human rights story for full impact. I concur with y...
I now lay the blame for the current situation with my mum on the Psychiatrists. They’ve become such an unquestionable “elite” class of physicians in the NHS – I think they’ve started to believe in their own self-importance. They’ve become high on their own irreplaceable status coupled with the amoun...
To be brutal, the sooner she gets herself into a real fix, the sooner she will be assessed and helped. If she has no money left and needs care, then her local LA, SS etc will have to sort it out. You have alerted the bank and others as to your assessment as to her state of mind. You have done your ...
Victor, I recommend you remove your association from the joint account, too many carers of carees with mental health related conditions end up paying off large debts incurred by their carers. Have you already sent the letter? If not, a friend of ours, a senior, retired and old school social worker ...
I spoke to a family friend who use to work for the NHS. The person said - try the Safeguarding Team. Anything to do with my mam's day to day living, they will direct back to Social Services. But anything to do with her finances - they should deal with. So the following is the email/letter I sent, wi...
Oh how dreadful! Can you switch companies or not? If you do decide she needs a care home, make sure you research them carefully, there are good and bad ones across all areas of the UK. Read reviews and take a list of questions to ask during your visit too. Pay attention to your gut feeling when loo...
If your mother is endangered in her new situation, she will need a new care assessment, possibly leading to her moving to where she can get the 24/7 care she may need. That's what I want to happen. I have an LPA on her Health & Welfare. But triggering it - would be a nightmare. I have evidence from...
I hope someone will dissect my problem for themselves – so that they may be made aware of how bad it can be, when the people in charge of their ailing parent are incompetent. My Carer status is a moot issue now. There has been a pile-up in my Universal Credit Claim, mainly due to the Care Coordinato...
Let's get this very clear. If my son came home every fortnight, that meant I was entitled to CA continually, even although he was at a boarding college. So many people don't know the rules and miss out on thousands of pounds worth of benefits as a result, which is a tragedy. It's a moot issue now. ...
