The last few weeks have been terrible and eventually we have had to have my mother in law put in respite care this weekend. To do this can you believe we had to take her to A and E at the hospital! We are just trying to unwind now terrified she will be allowed out in a few days.God knows what would happen if they did that, I am sure it would kill my husband.His blood pressure is severely high with the stress. We have been aware for a long time that this is the path we are on and have been looking around the internet to find info on who pays for care. I want to buddy up and talk to someone who is either going through the appeal process or legal process re Couglans Law. Is there a thread on here I could pick up on? Forums are great for support and advice so I hope you will be able to help. Deep sigh!
