Share your ideas about the practical side of caring.
Hiya. Thanks all. It seems like a total mission to get OT / social services to provide anything that actually meets carees needs. We are fast becoming a warehouse for useless equipment. Yet, anything caree actually needs ... they can't provide. We are making slight progress at the moment ... but baby steps. Keep your fingers and toes crossed. Got a funny feeling it's a bit of a postcode lottery/
Keep on at them every so often, don't just leave them to it. You have to make sure that you're on their case and not forgetting about things. After all, the longer they take to get something done, the more chance (goodness forbid) there is that you will have an accident.
This is a health and safety issue here.
What if you had PA's or agency workers coming in? They'd soon get you a hoist then, for the workers' H & S, wouldn't they?
Hiya. Totally agree. Isn't it awful how they seem to care more about the H&S of paid carers rather than us unpaid lot. Shocking.

Yep, I'm like the constant chaser (plays virtual Benny Hill music! lol) ... totally can't assume anyone will do their job, have to be on their case. It's hard though.
