Thanks Meg,
Although mum uses a Zimmer round the house, she needs a wheelchair for appointments. Now I know what the criteria are, I can make more forceful representations on mum's behalf. Jill
Gosh, you hit the jackpot there!!! What local authority area are you in?
<t>Please don't feel guilty, you have already done more than your fair share of caring. You might like to quietly find out whether your friend has all the benefits which she is entitled to, and suggest that she might find it helpful to have someone call in to do the heavy cleaning etc., which would ...
<t>Good idea but mum wouldn't like it one bit! I've been doing some research on the internet and I've found some portable ramps in various sizes etc. and they look very good, so I've sent them a contact form. Whilst I know Social Services ought to provide them, top priority is getting mum's eyes sor...
<t>Mum is having a chair assessment on Monday with the OT, so I'll bring it up then. Selling my Discovery is not an option. I used to drive an Escort, husband drove a Range Rover, which I only drove a few times a year. Husband died Sept 4th 2006. I was going out with a friend on Dec 4th 2006, but fo...

Very good meeting, I'm assured that everything is now going to change for the better, so fingers crossed. He ...
<t>In the past I know that it was worth applying for Carer's Allowance, even if it was taken off the Income Support amount, because it acknowledged that he was caring. In turn, this meant that there were additional "premiums" which applied - the helpline should be able to give you more advice. It's ...
That's good news. Has mum had a financial assessment? She might not need to make a contribution at all.
<t>"Be eccentric now, don't wait till your old to wear purple". I just love surprising people, including myself(!) with what I have done and can do. After an ultra conventional childhood I'm proudest of learning to ride a motorbike, passing my test in outback Australia, riding it to the beach with t...
