I have now had 4 heart attacks since 2015, started at the age of 31 and a double cabg in May 2019.
Since the cabg was done I have been even more ill, their last throw of the dice didn't work and I am now at 36 received palliative care for advanced heart failure.
The thing I am struggling with is practical help to allow me to live as independently as I can for as long as I can.
Over the past year since the cabg I have been able to look after myself (just) but everything around me in my house fell to bits. This has resulted in my home being hoarded in everything and dog mess as I wasn't fit to get down stairs to let him out.
As such the police broke in when I had my last heart attack and they made an urgent referral to adult social care due to my living conditions and they were meant to put in a plan and I wasn't to be discharged until that was in place. Low and behold I had 5 stents fitted and hospital wanted to discharge next morning with no care plan in place.
As it stands now I just want to die in a clean house and I am not fit to do it and have no family or friends to help, adult social care are meant to sort this. That was 2 months ago and nothing, they have done nothing. I thought the whole point of their job is to keep me out of care and at home for as long as I can. They just keep saying no funding. I have gone to Cab and the a Scottish Welfare Fund, all rejected. This isn't new, I have been on PIP for 18 months and won't ever be fit to work again.
I just don't know where to turn to get the help or funding I need. I just fell so low and upset like there is no point anymore and nobody is paying any attention to my care being palliative. If they cannot have me safe at home they need to provide care which is safe. A big proper deep clean is about £700 and I just don't know what to do. Can anyone here please advise or know of anything that would help in Scotland? I would be forever grateful to you.
