Hi, had a nasty letter this morning…no not re ESA, as i am waiting a reply to my recent claim.
No this is summat else to fret over.
My care package charge is being reviewed. It`s very worrying as I may be asked to contribute…hope I dont.
The letter tells me to list all the expenses caused due to my disability.
I have started the list. I`ll show you it here and ask if anyone has any other ideas I have forgotten, please.
Anyone else going through this too?
big electricity and gas bills due to;
electric profiling bed, with aircirculating mattress
2 hoists needing constant charging
electric recliner chair
washing machine on twice a day
laundry dryer when weather wet
showers once or twice daily
washing and drying of around 6 towels a day
clean bedding needed every day
purchase of extra bed linen and incontinence bed pads
moisturisers and sudocreme for skin at risk of pressure sores
change of clothing to be on hand for when bladder/bowel accidents occur (several days a week)
I also will be asked about special diet needs. These are;
fresh fruit and veg for bowels
cranberry juice for recurrent utis
Then I am asked about any other exense;
I need to replace washing machine more often than is normal due to over use
Our wet room flooring has been replaced several times. Lounge and bedroom floors gets ruined by wheels and toileting accidents.
