Hi Rebecca, I must tell you that I have no experience such as yours, but I do sympathise. It seems to me that of the three major problems you have in your life at the moment, your ‘lump’ and your own well being, a depressed partner and a very needy mother, your first priority should be your own heal...
Hi Christine, OH good, you are forewarned. You now know that this woman’s sole ambition may well be to get you to agree to looking after Mum full time, with absolutely no consideration for the well being of either of you. It would be absolutely not fair on either of you. How on earth are you suppose...
Hiya, I can imagine how you find that distressful. Has Dad lived abroad at all? I remember visiting Cyprus once where they don't flush toilet paper, or was his childhood home toilet subject to blockages? There might be a long ago reason why he is doing this, but not acceptable today. Hard one to dea...
Hi Christine, Your Mum sounds as wily as my Mum was, who was also not above dishing out a bit of emotional blackmail. Don’t think my Mum was quite as blatant about it as yours however. I was your age when I took on my Mum’s care. 10 years later, when Mum died aged almost 100, I found myself almost 7...
Hi Maureen, To give her the benefit of the doubt, perhaps the social worker is blasé because she has so many clients on her books that she just cannot allow herself to feel too much sympathy for any of them. Is Mum fully funded? Much cheaper to have carers –and you of course- than pay for a Home out...
Hi Susan, I used direct payments. My circumstances were that my caree was mainly self funding with a contribution from our LA which was received in the form of direct payments. I employed carers through an agency which meant I was not their employer and did not have to deal with all the paperwork th...
Hi Elaine, Great name –mine too! We share other things too. My Mum moved to a bungalow near me, but from South Wales to Yorkshire, my Mum also had thyroid problems and was hyper during my childhood due to mismanaged dosage. She had had the op to remove half the gland then given thyroxoin and not tes...
Hi Maggie, There will be a record of the prescription and there is your record and also the remaining medication which will clearly prove that you have given him the correct dosage as prescribed, Unless there is any missing? It seems to be a very odd thing for this carer to do. Is there any missing?...
Do what gives you the least stress in these hard circumstances.
Stay home and keep phoning for updates.
Or
Go to Mum, so you know what is happening -or not happening straight away.
I can't guess which would be best so you have to decide.
Hope all is well.

Hi, It's so annoying when this happens. The very odd occasion could, maybe, be forgiven if there's very,very good reason, but a regular habit is not good. Once late, forgivable, missed call NOT. Caree endangered. What proof do you have? The caree's word, obvious things not done? Or are you able to t...
