Hi can someone please help me. I've had a bit of a run in with a member of my husbands family who now insists they want full disclosure regarding my husbands care plan etc. I have asked my husband and he does not want his family to know anymore than what we chose to disclose to them. Unfortunately h...
It is for now BB, until next review in 12 months :-)
So had a really interesting review meeting with social worker and manager of support company .... this suggestion never even entered my head prior to the meeting as all the medical experts (consultants, specialist nurses, GP, consultant psychologists) all tell me that 12 hours 1:1 support isn't enou...
I've contacted the advise line a couple of times now and they have been fantastic, have put my mind at ease. After the OT mentioned that things have been a lot clearer for me, I'm going to actively find out what I should be entitled to and ask for it. At the end of the day I love my husband very muc...

However the social worker has said that we just ...

This is the first review we have ever had and although I have met our social worker (albeit a handful of times over the last 16 mon...
No Colin he didnt have the capacity to agree or sign anything, I am acting on his behalf. I am howevhowevw going to ask for clarification about his package at our review with the social worker.
What do they do...... that's a good question! They are supposed to come to let me have some respite time, so that could mean they take my husband's out for a walk or a drive, but he doesn't like being out the house away from me so only really goes out for 30 minutes or so at a time with them. It cou...
