My OH had his first week of respite at the end of last year. He went in on a Saturday and came out the following Saturday. Shortly after Christmas I received the invoice from the council and was shocked to see we were charged for 2 weeks instead of just the one. Upon querying this with the finance department, I was told that the charges run from Monday-Sunday hence we were charged a full week for the Saturday-Sunday then another full week for Monday-Saturday. They tell me a letter explaining this was sent out the day before he came home which I've still not received! If I'd known this then I would have booked him in from the Monday instead. Even the social worker was unaware of this. Hope this helps others who may not realise this could happen.
