My son has just been assessed as being eligible for CHC, the issue seems to be where? They seem to be suggesting he move to a residential facility which we do not want and don't believe to be in his best interests. My son has severe learning difficulty's and autism but also has a multiple seizure di...
Yes, thanks for that, I will ring the help line but I guess the issue is that whatever the assessment says the panel have to agree it and it seems from my discussion with the CC that it's not a given that they will agree, wish I'd known that from the outset so I wouldn't have employed people. Maybe ...
He had the assement done over 8 months ago while he was still in school, what we are waiting for is something in writing saying what they are prepared to agree regarding personal budget. They have been letting us use the unspent funds from last year which are now almost depleted so I won't be able t...
Can someone tell me if there is any time limit on how long SS can take to inform me what has been agreed re personal budget?

There is no government that will be seen to defend the obviously feckless, this woman tars us all. How many of us here would even be able to jump on the celebrity bandwagon? If we are not disabled ourselves we are full time caring for our significantly disabled loved ones. The excuse of good and bad...
Well. I'm sorry but I don't consider this woman as representative of people who have to survive on benefits. I will probably be shot down in flames for that opinion but there it is. I'm also suspicious of the conservatives motive in having her speak at conference, unless she intends to jump to the d...
We spent an age trying to engage my son in Lego, what a waste of time, he absolutely hates it, but it did help with communication in so much as the quickest and clearest "No" the minute he seen the Lego set being brought to the table :lol:
I haven't seen anything that bad, thankfully, what I do see though is the Supermarket trip where a bus load of learning disabled adults are sat outside in the car park while carers are inside shopping or they are inside with some of the residents, largely ignoring them while they go round filling th...
