MIL went into care home on an emergency basis from hospital. Stay will be permanent. I was therefore only able to give the care agency a week's notice that their services were no longer required. Unfortunately their contract states they need 28 days notice to cancel otherwise charges ensue. So I received their bill today for 3 weeks care which of course she never received from them. I know it's a business but I wasn't in a position to give them 28 days notice. A month ago I didn't know MIL was going to deteriorate that quickly. Rant over.
