From the end Feb my OH will pay £28.25 weekdays, £31.00 w/e, £39.00 Bank hoildays and £44.00 Christmas day.im looking into getting a private carer alongside my daughter and me.It just seems a lot of money for doing bits and pieces.Sometimes dad is not getting his full time.Probably like most of us to be honest.
Thats what I’m going to do. My daughter and I are taking back some of dads care. We have a cleaner every week now who sits with dad for a while. She will do tea. Then I need to find a carer for 3 days a week. Then I can get rid of the Care Company. Dad is not so much trouble or arguementative as before. He hasn’t got the strength.I'm cutting OH times from the beginning of Feb, OH has an hour in the evenings but it doesn't take that long so I've cut it to 3/4hr, doesn't save much, but as I always let the carers go 15-20 minutes early so OH may as well benefit from the saving. I've also dumped 4 calls throughout the week and got a private carer in instead for less than half the cost.
Hi, have you asked for a financial assessment? It could be you are entitled to financial support towards the costs. Our carers get less than £10 an hour working for our local council, it's disgraceful!Just had the invoice for the care. Gone from £20.92 to £25.00 an hour. Taking the mickey if you ask me!
