This again a case of folk who have read the books on how to do things and how they should be done but have absolutely no idea at all what life is really like in our fast lanes. i have had so many "professionals" tell me on countless occasions that I'm doing it all wrong but not one of them offers to do anything about it just simply ticks yet another box. These are peoples lives they are dealing with for goodness sake Mr Cameron get people employed in your government departments that really know how difficult it is to deal with these situations - I have been in your situation many many times with my Dad Scruffy he lost the use of his left side post stroke and some days finds it impossible to weight bear on his "good" leg - all SS tell me is to put incontinence pads on him and leave him for the carers. If Dad soils himself at 9.30am after his morning carers have moved on to their next client he would have to wait until 8pm until the next lot come I wonder if the "professionals" employed to tick the boxes would like my Mum's position of having to sit through the awful smell all day, i think not but Mum is 80 years old and just could not do the necessaries to clean him up so it's all down to me to do it "incorrectly" as they keep telling me with absolutely no satisfactory offer of practical help - i truly truly believe that these "professionals" should spend some time in the homes of the clients that truly need help before offering inpractical and sometimes offensive advice - all I got this week was that we have to pay even more money out for the insufficient (time wise) care that we already have - rant over now I'll finish the dinner but my thoughts are definitely with you Scruffy xxxxx
