So we had our social services support worker and a district nurse come round today to assess mum to see if she is eligible for NHS support/ payments/ care instead of our local county council!
She obviously passed as she she in such need for care and cant do anything herself!
Therefore they said her case will be put to the board!
The only thing is, is that at the moment we have direct payments from the local county council and have our own private carers coming in looking after mum because lets face it agency workers arent always great!
They are just fantastic with mum and we have a special car for her wheel care so they can take her out every day!!
With the NHS they will provide agency carers and only for morning and evenings and 3 afternoons of social interaction! Which is just not what we want for mum and it means that dad would have to quit work!! We currently have the carers 9-3 monday to fri!!
I was wondering if anyone else had this problem and whether all the councils were pressuring for these silly changes for there money cuts which just dont quite match up to the patients needs!!
Sorry for the moanxxx
