Thanks so very very much Bowlingbun - I felt like 'bitch of the year' typing this post earlier this morning. I will wait a few days as Social Worker due to speak directly to carer (with my permission) and to visit next week. I have already told SW about my circumstances and how I just cannot take on...
Do not know if anyone can help? Basically I have now made contact with my fathers social worker having found out he was offered a Adult Social care assessment a while ago and turned it down so file closed. However, it is now open again after his phone calls to the umbrella organisation offering help...
Can't give advice Angie but I am the carer of my 77 year old husband - I am much younger and I can totally relate to how you feel. It is normal to 'mourn' the man you fell in love with even though he is still alive, and the ambivalence is normal too. Is there any way you could get some help? Some re...
Yes Jenny I hear where you are coming from. Had similar advice from a very good friend who used to be carer. It is a 'last resort' though but I do think my GP would agree that my physical and mental health would not let me care for my father and my husband. Just taking it day by day and will liaise ...
Thanks Jenny, Elaine and Bowlingbun. Helena is hanging on in there! I love reading and have my wonderful cats whom I show occasionally. But yes it is very hard right now. I will write to SS if my lovely neighbour cannot cope. Just had email saying she had visited, took my father's washing and told h...
Thanks for your reply - much appreciated. My father is 79. I have never had a carers assessment but do get Carers Allowance and my husband does get Attendance Allowance. I can just about cope iwth my husband but he is very unsteady on his feet plus at the moment I am dealing with 3 consultants, a re...
Can anyone help? Very difficult situation with regard to my father. He has a heart scare on 18th March. He has been to a specialist and they feel his GP should be able to deal with it and he has been put on warafin. To put it bluntly he is wallowing in self pity. He is in sheltered acomodation and t...
Well he does have friends but one lady is exhausted taking him to the GP surgery for the Warafin and doing his shopping and has a full time job. He could frankly get a taxi there and back - I can understand when they were constantly changing his tablets, and he needing someone to help him write down...
Thanks I have the number and was going to ask for a Community Care Needs Assessment but my friend who has the care agency has said that SS will ask if I have my father's permission to chase. If I say 'no' - he has asked me not to chase it - frankly think he has not applied, they won't be able to dea...
I am my husbands carer and he has recently come out of hospital - his kidney function went down to 9% - not sure why - combination of anti biotics and painkillers. He also has a psoriasis flare up which is a nightmare but his dermatologist and nephrologist are talking. My problem now is my 79 year o...
