MOH is waiting for a referral to Social Services for assessment, with the intention of returning to our home. I am waiting for his POA (Health and Welfare) to be returned to me from the Office of The Public Guardian. I know I will have to have carers for him to a certain extent, if he is not going into a care home, which I hope to avoid. I have approached a young lady who helps me in the home, and who MOH knows well, to see if she would be interested in being one of his carers, as she has experience as an HCA. She has agreed to this. My question is can Social Services insist that I use agency carers, even if I have the POA ?
