Hi, I have 2 relatives in care and after the current home began to fail, I have spent the last month sorting out new placements with the help of Social services, who has approved of the move. They were formally informed about the move by the social worker and I gave them written notice. The first response I've had from them, days later when I thought all was sorted, is a threat of legal action if I try to move my relatives and they state I have no right or authorisation to move them. Of course this is rubbish. They accepted my authority to place them. I've puzzled over this but finally come to the informed conclusion that its about money, my relatives are simply income streams to them which are about to disappear. I'm desperate to get them out fast without any further ado before any more problems befall them. Any thoughts? I only did this after trying for months to sort out a serious failing of communications and consultation which has meant that a number of issues that arose could not be resolved. I tried various options, including going down the complaints route. They never changed their stance. It's their way or no way. Even the social worker and the new care home manager was obstructed in their attempts to do assessments.
