Hi Abi … You mention in your second post that "my college dont even recognize the work carers do either until now". Do I take it that you have some caring duties? Is it perhaps this that means that you can't fully involve yourself in college life? Would you like to tell us more. Apologies if I have ...
If she can read/follow simple instructions, then you could do what we did for my mum when she got her new television/remote. We wrote down (as simply as possible!) the stages to go through to "wake up" the TV, change channels and close it down. These were typed up (nice big bold black print on day-g...
I think the big question here is … what happened six weeks ago that necessitated you moving in with your relatives? There is a phrase used here along the lines of making the worst possible decision for the best possible reasons. It would seem that you reacted instinctively to whatever situation occu...

Looks like having your great-uncle as a witness could be potentially problematic.
LPAs cease on the death of the donor, so would not have any relevance for an executor. Usually what happens is that the funeral director's invoice is sent direct to the bank and they will pay it out of the deceased's account.
Can your house accommodate a live-in carer? If so, just Google "temporary live in carer" and have a look at what's available. Mum may not like it (or the carer!), but it's only for a couple of days and as long as she's kept safe and given her medications, what's the worst that can happen? You and yo...
Any published care home rates you've seen on the internet will almost certainly refer to self-funders. My mum (self-funding) is paying over £900 pw - I doubt that the LA-funded residents will be funded to much more than £600 pw (if that!). It's now a well-known fact that self-funders are now subsidi...
A brief update. I phoned the CQC yesterday and explained my concerns. Apparently, this situation does not just apply to "special measures" but to any admittance to hospital from residential care. The care plan would have to be updated on discharge because of possible changing needs and the hospital ...
Thanks for all your responses. Well, Chris, I really thought that it anyone could find something out it would be you :D so it seems there's nothing out there. The CQC are fully aware of the issue with the care plans (and other matters), which is why the care home was rated inadequate. There are abou...
Mum's care home has just been rated as "Inadequate" by the CQC and placed into special measures. One of the (many) failures highlighted was poor care plans. All residents are now having new care plans drawn up and these should be completed by the end of November (as per CQC instructions). However, t...
