I've been caring for my mum full time since mid February. Like many on here I've been dealing with abuse from my sister at the same time but have always had the support of Doctors, Nurses and Social Workers who are happy with the care mum is receiving. Tonight I received a curt email from mum's social worker, sent just before 5p.m. informing me that due to allegations made by my sister mum is now in Local Authority Safeguarding, that the outcome of the investigation could take 'some time' and that she is on leave for the next 2 weeks.I have no idea what the allegations are or how safeguarding affects what I can and can't do. I've looked on the internet but can't find the answers. I'm tempted not to respond to the email and wait until I receive proper notification. I was about to register an EPA. Does safeguarding prevent this now?
