Good post, and I agree with everything said, it infiltrates everywhere and yes that feeling in the pit of the stomach when the phone goes, and the inability to EVER switch off. With this GE happening we really need to engage with any politicians we come across and point them to this site to try and get them to understand the sheer scale of the issues faced by everyone concerned. We the carers but also the PWD and the system that is just not fit for purpose.
“not fit for purpose”
“Duty of care “
“ meeting care needs”
It’s amazing how theses phrases are found regularly throughout CQC, POB & other agencies- yet still the system fails !
maybe these agencies should be run by those with personal experience of PWD!
