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...
Penny, you tell them to contact Social Services. Self funding or not, she is ultimately their responsibility, NOT YOURS. Make a real effort not to get drawn into discussion, other than repeating "Contact Social Services" like a parrot. Bowlingbun - the discharge team have put me in touch with Care ...

Have a look at the CHC Framework. It's the most unfair postcode lottery I'm afraid. No chance of getting it down here, other places you are 800% more likely to get it!!!
Will do Bowlingbun, thanks.
Apparently my mum is not eligible for this I was told today. She has Alzheimer's, she has a stoma, arthritis in her spine, she can't stand unsupported, she has had a seizure and is on medication for that, she has a replacement knee, she has mild depression and she is currently in hospital where she'...
I feel so sorry for you Lars and this shouldn't be happening. My friends late Dad had bad Alzheimer's but lived alone in a flat where a warden popped in from time to time. He had carers going in twice a day and they literally pinched anything that wasn't nailed down. She was on the verge of having c...
Lars .... my hubby suggested putting a secret camera in Mums room and I was considering this when things escalated. I think it's disgraceful that we have to be made to feel like this and consider covert filming. I felt quite comfortable with Mums carers but she did say that some girls were great and...
Lars .... you kindly replied to my post yesterday about my Mum and I have to say I agree with you about your title "the system is rotten and fails the elderly." Over the last couple of years I have spoken to scores of people who have had bad experiences with either agency workers but more particular...
