Welcome to the forum, Mike. Sorry to hear about your disappointing experience with the Disability Law Service. I see it's a few weeks since you posted and am wondering if you got any help? If not, maybe Citizen's Advice, if you have an office in your area, could help?

The form for this is a little confusing. Above one box is the question, How did you hear about Care for a Cuppa Video Chat? In said box it says Choose One and some options are given. These options do not include Other, but there is another box above which it says Please share where you heard about S...
Hi Butterbee, welcome to the forum. Your situation sounds similar to mine. My husband had a stroke in July and now has aphasia as a result. Are the appointments with the neuro psychologist and the neuro occupational therapist helping? My husband was referred for speech and language therapy, also occ...

Unfortunately M is reluctant for anyone to speak to his employers on his behalf as that would mean they would realize he'd spoken to someone about them and they don't like him doing that. They see the role of the support worker as being to give off to M for not doing his work. My eldest, who is neur...
Thank you for your reply, Gilli. Yes I have tried online shopping. It is not always feasible. There is only my Dad and I and there are times when I obviously need to go out. Dad being frightened hasn't been a problem until very recently. There are no other family members living anywhere near us. My...
Welcome to the forum, Marymary. Sorry to hear your dad is frightened about being left on his own. Shopping is definitely difficult these days, especially if you can't do it very often and have to hurry home when you can get out to do it. Have you tried shopping online or arranging with someone to do...
A few years ago M's employment support worker made an arrangement with his employers that he would be given a number of specific tasks to do and allowed to go home at 3 pm provided he got those tasks completed. If they wanted him to do any other tasks they would have to tell him about them in plenty...
Welcome to the group. Your situation sounds very isolating with not having siblings or many other relatives or friends. Do you know if there's a Carers' group in your area? Your gp might know. Meantime, keep 'chatting' to us here - you'll always get a sympathetic ear.
