Still no news from NYCC, and they are now ignoring all emails. I suppose they have run out of stupid questions in order to try and confuse me. Perhaps they are beginning to realise that they just make themselves look incompetent, I've made it clear that I keep all my emails from them. I wonder if the manager feels it might not look good that she asked crazy questions like why money was taken out of an account, when the date she was talking about, was when money went into the account. Must be tricky running a benefits office if you can't tell the difference. If she paid for any courses to do her job, I will personally vouch for her that she should get a refund. I guess I should be grateful that social Services have every confidence that I will be able to cope even if my mother's money runs out altogether. Least I work full time, even if it is on minimum wages, and I haven't committed her to some expensive care-home they suggested she should go to when she was above the capital threshold. Luckily, with my mother having had the gash on her leg caused by the ambulance men, the nurse goes round to my mother's every week to put fresh dressing on. She saw how hard it is to get my mother to stand up, and she is arranging for some kind of equipment which should help her to stand up with help. First time for my mother to refuse to have her blood pressure taken. The nurse and doctors have known us for years, so they can see how very different my mother is now. It's good that there are people who actually understand the situation. Anyway, since Social Services won't help, the nurse has pushed forward for someone from physio to go and assess the problem of not being able to get mum to stand up, which should help my mother to get any necessary equipment to keep her mobile enough to prevent her getting into too much pain.
