<t>Hello Huegatort<br/> <br/> Sorry if I misjudged your situation, I'm so personally angry about so many things, sometimes I don't read posts deeply enough.<br/> <br/> Think you could be right in your son's case, i.e. diagnosis has been changed to save money. Don't let them. Keep fighting and all my...
Agree that women selling their bodies for sex is a different discussion, but for DP to be granted specifically to encourage this is, in my opinion, wrong from all angles of debate.
<t>If SS can endorse payments for prostitutes in another country, can they also endorse payments for heroin / other drug or alcohol use outside UK for "pain" control, "stress" control alongside, perhaps, couplings on a tropical beach with a prostitute? Why not? Aren't the disabled entitled to the sa...
SS bandy the term "duty of care" around as if it only applies to them. It doesn't. SS should remember that (in law) everyone and anyone caring (long or short term) has a legal duty of care to a patient/vulnerable person. Technically, if a caree dies, the carer can be convicted of manslaughter or mur...
<t>In my case, although means-tested if applied to my mother (the patient) Social Services are able to help me as Carer, non means-tested. <br/> <br/> Thus, they could not pay for Day Care for her, but they can and do pay for Day Care for her to enable me as Carer to have a break.<br/> <br/> Same re...

Because then she might not be accepted into certain Homes, i.e. nice, good and NHS funded Homes. (Correction: he wi...
<t>SS are not legal beavers and should not quote or act on the Mental Capacity Act as they do.<br/> <br/> They've latched onto a couple of sentences/paragraphs and interpreted them as they wish. Rubbish.<br/> <br/> The MCA is a good intentioned law to protect vulnerable people, not to allow SS to us...
Update: a) Still waiting for scan appointment...... b) I've contacted specialist solicitors, completed initial questionnaire & had a reply that they think my mother is entitled to NHS free continuing care......if their investigations with NHS Trust are negative, there are sufficient grounds to take ...
Thanks for your replies xx I've seen S/W again, who has explained the Mental Capacity Act properly, so Mum is being seen by someone tomorrow at 10am. I must remember to get up in time! Every few minutes she asks when she's going home! Still, I took her to the restaurant and had a snack there, then ...
<t>Susieq:<br/> <br/> Thank you so much for your reply....I feel v alone sometimes, but I'm not really alone because you & others are there somewhere in cyber space.... would love to be able to meet up in the real world some day.<br/> <br/> GP saw Mum about 10 days ago. On examination he said he...
