Share your ideas about the practical side of caring.
Yes, HB. Besides the hospitals trying to free up more beds, the local authorities find it difficult to find care agencies willing to take new carees due to staff on leave. Same applies to the LA staff. From before Christmas until after first week in January.
Social Services told me to "apply again in January, we're not taking on any more referrals until then" when my mum was bedbound with a problem leg.
I couldn't care for her as I'd just had my abdomen opened right up!
Emergency carers hadn't gone shopping "not my job" I was told, so on Christmas Eve the fridge was empty. The freezer was full though, but no one had looked.
In the end the GP sent mum for an X ray, which revealed......…….a BROKEN LEG!
