I really hate to say this, but does anyone else get the impression there's a big push for forcing (read: "leaving them with no other option") people into care homes, especially older people, because of the law on care caps changes in April 2020? Apparently from that point they can only charge someon...
Thanks Chris, it's an odd one, isn't it. Well, basically a social worker has decided to try and impose care cuts on my sister in law, despite there being no change in her level of need. They are chomping at the bit to force her into a care home, and claiming that what they pay for her care at home i...
Hello again all, Just wondering if anyone can tell me - would someone have a leg to stand on if they requested a delay in a review/assessment from social services, until they had received all the data they'd requested under a subject access request? I feel like it's kind of important for everyone to...
Thank you all again for your replies and insight. Honeybadger, I totally agree with you. It seems like councils will come for anyone's budget if they think they have a chance at snatching some funding back. I dread to think how many people are out there who have lost care/support because they either...
Chris, Londonbound, Rosemary, thank you all for the information. Can you tell me what level of need people with these care packages had? (eg physical/learning disability, elderly etc) Was their package always set that low, or had it been reduced at any point? Did anyone try to fight for more care? I...

I think that's outrageous, I know blanket po...
Hi everyone, Just wondering about something regarding my parents. My mother gets a direct payment for care/support due to a lifelong physical disability, she's going to turn 65 next year and due to some recent drama with the local council I'm wondering what happens when she jumps age brackets? Will ...
Chris and Honeybadger, thanks so much for your replies. Very useful and informative! :)
Call your GP and ask them when the flu jabs come out and to get your mum on the list for a district nurse visit. Alternatively, find out when they're due to be released/given and ask for a GP home visit. If your surgery is anything like ours, you'll have to speak with a doctor before actually being ...
Hi Carers, Looking for some first had advice/experience. My sister in law is currently being considered for CHC funding. During the assessment a risk assessment was mentioned. We're not sure what these actually are, but I'm assuming it's to ensure her home is suitable. So I'm wondering, has anyone h...
