    I hope that the panel will agree but my mother was referred 6 times to panel and each time they refused.
    As others say though, so much depends on your area and I know we have a much higher proportion of 80+ in our area suffering with dementia and other health needs and the PCT is really stretched financially.

    We have good new. I’ve just had a phone call from the SW, we got the funding for my dad. The panel agreed with the Assessment team. Funding will start from the 26th June.

    Only down side is we lose our absolutely brilliant SW, as she now hands over to the CHC team.

    That's great news, Elle, well done! Of course it's sad that your dad should be eligible for this funding in the first place, and I imagine it's a bitter-sweet resolution. But hopefully it lifts some of the worry about the future, and makes the hard work and stress worthwhile x

    Just catching up with everyone after a weeks holiday. I’m so pleased for you Elle, although I know it doesn’t solve your problems, but hopefully one less thing to worry about. It’s not as if you’ve had an easy ride up till now and funding is only one side of things.
    I totally agree it’s a lottery and so unfair who does it doesn’t qualify but the more people who do get it may help the rest of us, well, others anyway.
    Sending a big hug and and a sigh of relief for you your way for whatever come next xxx
