After 7 weeks of constant battle and two failed assessments, the PCT have finally admitted that Mam should be fully funded. A lot of this victory was down to the support from the care manager and also the support of Mam's consultant. It just goes to prove if you don't let Social Services and the PCT try and "steamroller" you, you may win in the end. I know this does not help Mam a great deal, but it is one less thing for me and my sister to worry about, it means we can concentrate on spending quality visiting time with her. I would say to all people in this position, don't just give in and accept what the PCT say, if you feel that the person you care for should be fully funded, keep on to Social Services and the PCT to re-assess each time there is a decline in the health of your loved one.
