I hate being negative but I honestly don't feel we will get it now. I should get my pension next July (2018) yet I have friends only months older who have been getting it for ages. Years in some cases.
At my mums old Care home I was speaking to a man whose Mum was in an adjacent room. He got her a phone put in but told me he wishes he hadn't as she was ringing him all day and night. She used to ring anybody she could think of and then they would ring her back and it would ring for ages before she ...
My persistence paid off and they're moving mum tomorrow to a small rehab hospital. My next aim is to try and get NHS Continuing Care funding for her but I think that will be a massive issue unfortunately. I feel I have to try though. I heard on the grapevine that one of the better homes I looked at ...
Well Mums still in hospital and medically fit apparently. The CHS woman visited us at the hospital today to say their contract with the hospital ends tomorrow so they will have no further involvement with us. That was shortlived for us. It's down to the discharge team now. She is going to see if the...

So has mum been deemed to have "complex needs"?
Haven't got a clue Bowlingbun. Haven't seen anybody on my hospital visit today. Weekends are always quiet.
I picked up a leaflet in the hospital today about changes to CHC assessments. In our area they say these assessments will no longer be carried out in a hospital but in the community once the patient has settled and reached their optimal recovery. This is because the process often resulted in delays ...
Yes ... that is a dilema .... the NHS ( owned by the taxpayers ) recommending a private emterprise .... ? Be sure to explore ALL options as choice may be limited to ones connected to that private enterprise and , by definition , may not be the correct solution. After all , a private enterprise gain...
I'm reading all your replies. They are based in NHS hospitals and are funded by the NHS. Surely the NHS know what they're doing when they took them on? It's either do it myself (and I've already looked at loads) or the NHS tell me to use them. They say as mum is self funding it's nothing to do with ...
Penny, although I appreciate CHC funding is a postcode lottery, I can tell you that my MIL in the westcountry is a lot less 'medically bad' than your poor mum, and she still gets CHC. BUT, she is in a care home that (a) is also a nursing home and (b) has many LA-funded residents. So, I'm wondering ...
I'd never heard of that either so googled it and found this https://www.chshealthcare.co.uk/services/hospital-discharge-schemes/care-home-selection-service/ Yes, these are the people Henrietta. The woman was very pleasant and helpful with me so I wait to see what they will come up with. By coincide...
