I can't believe it's been a year either. I do read your posts on the forum and I'm always sorry to read of your problems. Sorry I haven't sent any replies. It's all about the money with this particular Clinical Verifier from the CHC. She has no empathy at all. Mum has specialised neurological proble...
The CHC home does. They have a bed and CHC planned for her to go on Monday. They knew full well, we would only consider the specialised home. I don't know if the specialised one has a vacancy. As I said, I only heard the news at 4.30 pm this afternoon from CHC and came off phone at 5 pm. I will have...
Thanks for your replies guys. Mum had a CHC review on 2nd September Bowlingbun. The nurse assessor agreed Mum needed night care and she called the CHC straight afterwards to let them know. I have spoken to her since and she too says Mum doesn't need the specialised home. The Matron did the original ...
Mum has had CHC funding for a year. We've had all sorts of problems with the care agency provided. I've posted about some of them in the past on this forum. We were just waiting to hear about further funding and a personal health budget (agreed to at recent CHC review) and then we were going to chan...
I've just sent you a pm Ortensia.

I care for my mother and we have been suffering for the last year, at the hands of a similar agency chosen by the CHC.

I wonder how many more of us are out there? We should form an alliance and expose both the agencies and the CHC!
Hi again both of you I have just spoken to the CHC nurse who will be coming to do the review tomorrow. It sounds as though it will be the same as the reviews you had. No DST to complete. Just going through the paperwork to discuss Mum's needs (because we have requested night care to be added to the ...
Thanks very much to both of you for your reassuring replies. I really hope our experience will be the same but I've been led to believe from the CHC and from Beacon, (who said that the review will be no different from the original assessment), that the process will start from scratch with a full DST...
Hi Everyone Does anyone have experience of a CHC review? I know those successful in receiving funding are in the minority but I think there are a few here who managed to get it. We have our first review on Friday and I am very apprehensive. I do not know what to expect. Do they start from scratch wi...
Thanks very much guys for all your support and good advice. We don't have a personal health budget. I did ask the CHC a few months back about that (when I complained about the agency). They told me how to apply for one but I didn't take it any further at the time. I had a long talk (a few actually) ...
I asked our current live-in carer to accompany Mum and I to her outpatient appointments at various hospitals. Mum travels by ambulance and is wheeled into her appointments on a stretcher (she has advanced Parkinson's Disease and other problems). I asked the carer to accompany us in case Mum needs a ...
