Thanks for the reply....it’s always a 50/50 call as a person was complaining on facebook about Postal vote fraud... Yes you can argue that my mum might say one party and I tick another box....or I may not even ask her at all and just go with what party she has always voted for but I don’t think you ...
Before I get arrested for starting a big argument on Facebook about a persons right to vote can someone explain what I should or shouldn’t be doing... We use a postal vote, my mum is blind and has dementia, I have POA... If I read out the names on the postal form and the parties they represent then ...
Our original meeting was back in Sept 2018... Endless phone calls and emails back and forth chasing an answer We FINALLY get a reply end of March 2019 that they will fund and THEY will take over payment from now on and back date our claim....... Have now been chased by the carer company for non paym...
So after a back braking enjoyable day weeding in the garden I asked mum if she wanted to come out in the sunshine.... I’m not sure why I asked as I knew the answer would be no.... Is it an age thing, or a dementia thing ? I can’t understand why she would prefer to sit in the front room which is actu...
I believe our care company is about to do this as well which is really frustrating as I read the record book when I get home to see what’s happened during the time I’m away at work. The records are so valuable to keep an eye in case a pattern develops of my mum going off her food, and as she suffers...
We finally got an email today nearly 7 months since the first CHC meeting.....and they have agreed to fund my mums care package. The relief in reading the email and I just burst into tears.....it’s been exhausting waiting 7 months for an answer.......7 months of producing endless records and evidenc...
Hi Pet66 I think that has aggravated the situation that the Social Worker who was at the original meeting failed to turn up at the next meeting and when they called to find out where she was her department advised that she had actually quit so was never going to be at the meeting anyway. We don’t ha...
Lol......now you know why I’m “depressed”.......first CHC assessment done start of Sept 2018 and 6 months on I still haven’t had a letter confirming if we qualify or not.....I email once a fortnight and just keep being fobbed off. My last email to them two weeks ago demanded the email address of the...
I promise you I’m not trying to be superwoman....I work to try and help towards the running costs of the house as although mum has savings we are having to supplement her carers fees to the tune of nearly £2000 a month....so the savings won’t last forever. Yes we could probably make cost savings in ...
Self funding I’m afraid.....two brothers one great one useless

Have managed to put my mum to bed early tonight so bit of me time for a hour or so

Was thinking of talking to work to see if I can maybe take one afternoon off a week for a while to pull myself out of this.
