Same here. After waiting nearly 7 months after requesting an assessment I had it last month and I've heard nothing since. At the meeting I was told all that was on offer was a two hour sitting service but I work full time and in any event, nothing has come of the assessment. Mum now gets so fraught when she's on her own that I feel a care home is the only option.Also insist you need help now. I had a carers assessment done. Was told I could have 3 hours a week take a break sitting service. That was 2 months ago. My mum has just gone into a care home for respite for two weeks and looks like it may become permanent sadly.
Good luck x
Expect... Lots of form filling, lots of insincere comments, many patronising comments and more forms to fill in! Or was that just me?Don't know what to expect - any advice would be gratefully received- dos and don'ts?
Have you contacted Age UK? They do a free sitter service of 1 x 4 hours a week or you can split it for 2 x 2 hours a week, to give you to have a short break. It may help whilst you are waiting for them to come up with something.I'm so afraid that they're going to give me nothing - I feel near to breaking point, I need help but everyone knows that the public services has been starved of funds
