Evening all, hope you`re doing the best you can. Just devoured a plate of mince, neeps and tatties! Our Scottish friends will know what that is, eh? Lovely!
Well now, you may recall that I had recently put in a request to increase my care hours, (Direct Payments) as things were getting harder and harder for hubby.
I got the call today…it`s been approved!
This means I can have a carer come every morning to shower and sort me out! Then another can take me out twice a week, plus do 1 sleepover a week. This is particularly helpful to hubby. My nocturnal needs to get up for a wee are all over the place! He
ll be able to get at least 1 good nights sleep a week. We have a spare bedroom upstairs (i sleep downstairs), which is quiet and peaceful…lucky him, eh?
All this starts next Monday…with a T`ai Chi class!
If anyone has wondered about Direct Payments, then go for it. It does seem daunting at first, but is great when it`s sorted.
