Well, we’re now into week 11 of having help from a carer six mornings a week for an hour. Or rather 50 minutes because of the travelling time.
I’ve got an appointment next week for a financial Assessment. I’m anticipating being hit with a big bill for the visits so far.
We don’t have any savings having spent thousands on adapting our home, on wheelchairs, mobility scooter, riser recliner chairs, adjustable bed etc.
But we do have quite a good income, we’ve both got occupational pensions, I’ve got PIP and my husband has his old age pension. But we still have a mortgage, a car loan and a home improvement loan, but I’m still expecting to have to pay in full.
So, it was nice while it lasted, but at over £80 a week I think I’ll have to stop it.
I’m not going to sleep for worrying about this until it’s all over.
