    Yes very interesting because the adult social care team where we live say “ even though my husband has not got capacity it’s his human right to decide” I have now got a specialist solicitor dealing with things as I have made myself ill because of this as my husband doesn’t understand he is ill and what he needs as a care package

    It would appear that adult social care have appointed an independent social worker, she phoned me to ask about things and was unaware I had appointed a solicitor, when I explained this she said she was would be unable to make a decision about where my husband should be in care, thank goodness, she’s only met him once. Thanks for replying by the way, I’ll continue to battle my way through the mine field that is inept.
