I think BB would know for sure but I didn't think the caree is allowed to be at the carers assesment? He may be allowed to sit in a waiting area but as far as I'm aware not present in the room. Your cats sound wonderful which I must admit I'm not a cat lover they tend to bite my toes but your's soun...
Ah yes the one thing I hadn't put in my original post is that she does have a pacemaker. I think that changes things because as you say some machines can't be used with a pacemaker. To be honest I'd willingly find the money somehow if it would help it's just getting everything to fit together. I'm g...
Are you able to get a carer in whilst you go out? You may have to pay a contribution but it would be considerably less than full costs. I would say threaten to walk out but I doubt it would do any good. Have you had a carers assessment? What was the outcome of that? I wish I could wave a wand for yo...
I often wonder if some medical professionals are in the wrong job? Don't be afraid to call them out when they are being less than helpful, a firm letter in addition to what BB said about how hard it is for you a gentle I don't want to have to complain but if you continue to make things more stressfu...
We had a very unhelpful DR's apt this morning. The red/purple patch with a bright pink ring around it on the rear of her calf is down to edema and Nan needs to raise both legs above her hips for most of the day. The problem I have is she has TB lesions on her left hip and it is fixed so doesn't move...
Thank you Thara, I finally got through and have since discovered that rails are being reordered and she's not sure the shower chair will work but she is going to send another one and "see what happens". I'm not entirely sure whose fitting the drop down rails but time will tell I guess.
Nothing happens immediately in this area of Devon there's always a 2/3 week time lag. Or at least it feels like that. I am unable to do much today due to other apts but have sent an email, I have more time tomorrow so will start calling and being a pest. This will teach me to trust someone else to d...
I know she was on leave about three weeks ago but didn't expect it to be this long. The rails need to be fitted to the walls and it's a council house so permission needed to be sought but I asked the chap who gives the permission when he came about something else and he wasn't aware of it which make...
About four weeks ago we ssaw the occupational therapist who came up with a lot of suggestions and mostly the equipment has arrived bar the rails for the toilet, it's been a month and I emailed last week and don't have a reply. Should I try again this time via Care Direct or am I too early to start t...
At our last finance review social services sent a detailed sheet explaining we didn't need to pay but they are paying the agencies £30 an hour which I would have to pay if we had to top up the care for any reason, [which after another assesment by the OT and care agency they agreed to fund more time...
