Hi I've posted before, and I wish I had more time to view the forums, but I'm on alert 24/7. Social services came last week unannounced, and they came with the care team involved with my mums care, and I have two concerns basically. Firstly, I was basically told off for looking after my Mum too well, and that the care package in place to help my mother wash and dress (which Mum does her self, but a lot of cajoling is involved), and to feed her, Ro which i was doing. And as such the SS were going to withdraw the care package and close her case. I tell you, it's very difficult to be told off for doing the right thing. Mum will not let anybody wash her, and the carers were actually very happy just to talk to her for 10 minutes and make sure she's alright. I know that sort of breaches the regulations of her care, but without them mum and I would not get any human contact. Secondly, I had a conversation with the SS about if/when mum died or was taken into care. I was concerned about the fact that we receive housing benefit for Mum, and I voiced my concern that I would lose the privately rented accommodation as soon as she passed or was out in a nursing home. I was given by a social worker the card of a homeless charity. Is this really what they should do? There are more problems I'm having, but these are the two at this moment. I contact the SS and I just get a 'no we longer do that anymore', kind of reply. I cannot talk to my Mum about these problems, as due to her Alzheimer's, she gets extremely upset, and it's not worth it. I only have this forum to vent any problems, so I hope I'm not being stupid in posting this, please be kind and forgive me if I am. Don't get me started on trying to get my mum a walking frame... Nobody took interest, and I ended up buying her one for £60 that I didn't really have. I know I've said more than two things, but forgive me.
