I’m hoping that I minimized the barb in my tone here, but I was amazed at what happened to me today. The Care Manager of the team looking after my mam - questioned the validity of the LPA I have for my mam’s Health and Welfare when I produced it. He was questioning whether my mam was fully aware of ...
Seek expert advice , Victor ... as recommended earlier. I can't really win this; all I'll do is put myself through hell - and the NHS will still win. I'll just have to bow to the inevitable; my mam is in their hands. They can do as they please with her. No ones going to come to save us from this in...
I'll have a go. I just feel the DWP and the Coordinator is experimenting to see how well she does manage her own money; as if they don't believe me. That's ok. I'll just have to leave it to pan out. I've been advised that it's the best thing. Mam cannot accuse me of stealing if I don't have access t...
My closest friend used to work for the DWP, and through the years of problems with my son, she has been incredibly helpful. She told me that wherever possible, DWP wanted FAMILY to act as appointee for someone who either lacked the mental capacity to deal with things themselves, or who due to disab...
I am not familiar with the term "Care Coordinator"? Who is she employed by? DWP award "Appointeeship" and it's NOTHING to do with Social Services! (Although I had to forcefully remind our local SSD of that simple fact). Appointeeship isn't the same as having Power of Attorney either. I know it's no...
The conversation I had with the Care Coordinator in charge of my mam. The conversation went along the lines that the financial power of Attorney is being taken off me and put back into my mam’s full control. The DWP representative was at pains to assure me that this is just a temporary arrangement a...

My understanding is that everyone IS entitled to a Second Opinion from a different consultant, anywhere in the UK. We do not have to be treated by the 'local specialist'. However, if the PATIENT does not want a second opinion, that is the tricky bit. Mental illness is notorious for the 'non-coopera...
I would first of all complain to the Care Quality Commission if you don't think the service she is receiving is good enough. They need to know. I would also record the crying fits etc. etc. You don't mention how old you are and how old mum is? This could be crucial. She's 75 this year; I've just tu...
I have a mother who has Schizophrenia. Her current unwell-state started back at roughly the end of February. She was suffering from severe Insomnia. All the way through March the insomnia had been the main problem. In April – the issue was the Schizophrenia in so much that her behaviour was out of t...
