Some time ago I posted my concern about what if I was very ill and what would happen to Dee. I spoke to my GP today and feel reassured. She is very clear in her mind that, in such an event, Social Services would be involved by the appropriate doctor and are duty bound to act. This is despite my recent experience when SS refused to help apart from telling me look in the lists of homes already supplied by them. And she reassured me that the Doctor would be truly involved in all of this. If in the unlikely event that a Home bed was not immediately available then Dee would be hospitalised so that she was not left to cope alone – which she cannot. Also I carry a card and a necktag with a phone number and a reference number relating to Dee and her circumstances. This is a scheme involving the Red Cross and the Council so I assume this links into our brilliant Care Phone system. Hope this is helpul to others who may have wondered about this and it would be good to hear of other people's experiences or thoughts.
