Hi Sal, This is how Direct Payments worked for me, although I understand some people find difficulties. I had to open a new dedicated bank account into which the direct payments were made. I had to make sure the money in that account was used solely for the payments for carers. (Nothing else. Could ...
Hi Sal Yes I did. In my case the excellent day time carers couldn't provide anyone for the bed time run as Mum needed double carers for hoisting.so I sourced another company just for that visit. Be prepared for procedures to differ a bit and prices per hour too. (Especially at Christmas). Also there...
Hi Samantha, I am replying through ignorance/no experience, please forgive, but maybe I can make a suggestion although others here will be better informed. It seems you are worried about what might/could be the situation in three years time. Three years hence, what stage would you be in your degree?...
Hi again , I'm not sure what use a clock would be. Perhaps someone will explain. My thoughts are that your SIL is is some kind of denial and 'martyr mode'. (Not any kind of professional opinion). I wonder if you have shown your brother this thread? If he is working all day and reluctant to 'interfer...
Hi Andrew, I am so sorry to hear your sad story. My sympathy and condolences on your terrible loss. Immediately after a loved ones passing there is much to do and arrange, but when all is complete it suddenly hits hard.

Hi Tracey,
There comes a time when enough is enough and you have to get your priorities right. Dad has gone past the point of no recall now and thank goodness for your good sense in recognising that before something unforgivable happens.
Stick to your decision and protect that lovely little lass.
Hi Valerie, First of all try to get your SIL to accept that no-one HAS to look after another adult, whatever the relationship. Not parent, spouse, sibling or adult child. There's no law or obligation to enforce it. Secondly get her to practise that small but very powerful word. NO. Tell the hospital...
Hiya What would happen if you ignored the shout? Would it get louder and more agitated or would he stop until the next time? Might he be shouting 'in his dreams' or do you think that his sleep patterns have got turned around so that he is awake all night? Perhaps a visit to the GP? Maybe some medica...
Hi Simon Obviously your dear wife's needs have been assessed and care put in place but have you undergone a Carer's assessment? When I had one it was agreed that the care company we used could provide a 'sitting service'. This meant that one of the carers my mum already knew would come purely to sit...
