Had an invite to a meeting organised by our local Social Services.
s about what they call a Fairer Charging Policy`.
Now what this
ll mean to yours truly is a very scary thing.
Currently I get (fully paid by them), 16.75 hours a week, plus 1 sleepover.
My hubby struggled on to care for me with no help, for 11 years. We were both frazzled and tempers were lost, tears flowed and bruises appeared…no, I wasn
t beaten, just got them when hubbys raging RA caused him to drop me or handle me too harshly.
I am worried silly that they`ll want me to contribute or cut my care.
we have a minus bank balance, due to the fact that we`ve spent around 30k of our own money, buying equipment, adapting campervans, and altering the house to suit. it is an ongoing expense, as I continue to deteriorate and stuff gets damaged or worn out and needs replacing.
The meeting is next Thursday…watch this space…
has anyone else got one of these meetings coming up?
