Jenny, you make some good points. How much care she needs is how much she currently gets (morning and evening call) IF she co-operates and is otherwise 'healthy'. Funding has been allocated to extend time but not happened for various reasons. Re lifestyle - Yes absolutely my mum has right to choose ...
Absolutely. My respite break at weekend, with lads night in/out on sat is sort thing I need to do more of. Days like yesterday don't have such a lasting effect, my resilience increased greatly last year, but still hard to shrug it off completely. Getting away again start of june and looking forward ...
No formal diagnosis but acknowledged to have some form cognitive impairment. Was showing clear signs of alcohol-related dementia but since I been home to 'ration' access this has receded. Simply put, she is bereaved (2009) and can't (or won't) move on. Dismisses counselling (which tried organise las...
Genuinely pleased that this has opened up wider debate, shows Forum at its best. Following yesterday morning's fun and games, my mum let her young (sole) carer do everything for her last night. This morning she roused, showered and seemingly dressed herself, notwithstanding her sore shoulder where f...
Whatho peeps I have been on respite break over w/e, back yesterday, SW here on arrival. Mum not wearing her pendant alarm, been locking carers out (its mortice key and she leaves it in door, carers can force it out with pen and use keysafe but doesn't do lock much good), food I had cooked/'nibbly' f...
I realise may been somewhat glib in my last posting. I am used to saying no to my mum (and vice-versa!) but for those who have more 'functional' relationships with their carees I can imagine it being more difficult. As Father Ted coached Fr. Jack three possible responses to questions: 1.Yes 2.No 3. ...
Peeps, I honestly don't see problem. As Grange Hill kids said 'Just say no'..... :huh:
I think there can be grey area between two options you give Jenny, and that where my mum fits in? She wants care workers to come when she wants, on demand effectively and do EXACTLY what she wants at that particular time. Not very practicable I'd say..... :pinch: Since care review meeting on Tuesday...
Have spoken to her (also my) GP bowlingbun and he agreed to speak to her. It is specialist home, spoke manager and he knows full sp, going visit fri pm, keeping my fingers crossed!
Yes SS facilitated the meeting. Tried persuade my mum to co-operate with carers. We are north of border and since my mum is over 65 (67) personal care is free (for users). Agy was commissioned and is paid for by social work. Have been happy enough with agy, stepped in when without care last year and...
