Hi Jenny, the chair is sorted. Hubby rang her and told her she needs it and must pay, so I have put deposit down this afternoon to order it. No, she didn't always spoil him, in fact when he still lived here they hardly saw each other. He probably speaks to her more often now than when he was 5 miles...
I know Bowlingbun, but she probably wants to hang on to it to send another £2,000 over to Hubby's brother in Oz to pay for his flights home on his next visit, like she did for his Christmas trip. Who she gives her money to is her business, so long as she covers our costs, I don't give a damn, but at...
Excuse me for taking this off-topic, but just come back from assessment for her rise/recliner chair ... she is now saying its too expensive, as she can get a similar one out a magazine she saw for less than £400. I did warn her before guys turned up, that this chair is being made to measure to suit ...
I am trying to sort a daycare placement once or twice weekly for MIL, but none of our local ones provide any transport. Only option would be wheelchair taxi, but having used them a couple of times for other things, the driver usually stands outside puffing on a ciggie and expects someone to wheel he...
Thanks for replies. The carers do not have the time to do the amount of laundry she generates - she is often urine incontinent between visits, even though she has maxi pads, so they have to change her underwear and sometimes clothing, plus this week there have been 2 lots of full bedding in 2 days, ...
MIL is chair bound/bed bound, with 4 x daily care package. I do shopping, laundry, errands, sort out all appointments, paperwork, meds, meal deliveries etc. I submitted Attendance Allowance form last Sept on her behalf. She said nothing about letter approving higher rate of £83/week from 1 November ...
Do not feel in any way that residential care is letting her down or that you have failed. If anything the rest of the family had failed YOU by not helping and supporting you in the care she needs. Does she own her home? If so, I suspect it needs to be sold to fund her care ... this might make the fa...
If he is going to come home, I would insist on an OT visit to assess the equipment he needs to make sure he is comfortable. MIL has a pressure cushion for her chair and a fully adjustable hospital bed, all provided as part of her hospital discharge. As I mentioned, the carers check her skin daily to...
If his level of confusion would now be detrimental to his welfare in being sent home, even with carers in place, then you need to request a full Mental Capacity assessment. If they deem him mentally fit to continue to exist at home, then they must put the full care package (4 x daily is usually the ...
When she went into Hosp on Boxing Day was it ambulance transport or did you take her in for a check over? Sounds like she needs to be formally admitted for a full assessment. Ring either her own surgery which should have a 24 hr helpline number or NHS 111 or whatever they are called now, tell them s...
