I give up .. I really do.. Image

Will the assessment went well i got my hopes up a little .. only to get a call to say no .. as no place is available with a hospital bed... My heart sunk.. then the social worker rings saying now mum needs a FNC assessment for nursing home untill that is done .. no respite offered Image Image Image Image Image

So i now have to ring my community matron on monday to organise that and start all over again ..

I have told the social that i have packed a bag ready to walk as i can't stand no more of this chasing around and being passed pillar to post..

At long last, a result! Do make sure that you have a proper break when your mum has gone. This has been a long and very hard road for you to this point, but there is now real hope of an ultimate solution. I suspect that the respite placement will also give a report to the people responsible for Continuing Care. Do expect to feel a bit odd for the first couple of days without your mum, I found the first respite period my son ever had surprisingly difficult. Take care.

Make sure there are no meetings or paperwork while your mum's away - or there's no point in a break!

I bet it was the "my bag is packed" statement that did the job.

Yes Charles your properly right..

sadly i need to get the paperwork done whilst she is in respite so hopefully she can go from respite to a home..

But i will try and enjoy my break much as possible.. get out and do things not sure what yet.. depends on funds available as next week its income support i have some bills to pay and the week after is a short week only my mums pension.. i do have my carers allowance also,

When you are doing the paperwork, just try and see it as your passport to freedom. If that doesn't make it easier, nothing will!
