Hi now for Round 3 - this thred was the last and final stages to getting the care we needed!

It's a done deal at last!!! Image Image Image

The Agency dealing with payroll etc. has been faxed the PA's bank details and it looks like...after blood, sweat and tears... we now have our Direct Payment set-up!
YAY!!!!!! Image
The official start date is 16 march so they're going to pay our daughter for the hours she's been up 'helping and giving me a break' during the last weeks.
We are delighted! Image

Thanks for all the help and support we've been given during this whole sorry saga which seems to have been dragging on for ever!

In reality it took from December 6th till today to get a result but it was a loooong rocky road to which I'll be eternally greatful that you lot all walked it with me!

A special thanks to Rosemary, who helped me focus when I thought it would never end!!

Seriously though,well done Marie for seeing this to the end.Its been a struggle at times but thats when forums like these come in to their own.You get the support needed to help you.Its been your own determination and drive that has triumphed Marie.

Hopefully now, you can get some routines in place to enable you to get regular breaks/sleep.Wishing you,your hubby and your daughter all the very best with this.
