hi all , not so happy new year ,
my son has a brain injury, right hemiplegia following a stroke as a baby and autism , I have struggled all his life but he is now 20 and has lived in residential care for four years last year was horrendous the transition to adult placement was a constant battle and we thought wed found a great supported living placement , they sounded brilliant and said they could manage his behaviour , even have a specialist behaviour nurse on the staff . I have been living with him for over week , as when he got upset his carers all hid behind a door and his arm got crushed !!!!we have a great team withing social services and even commisioner was on board this week , and has a mental health nurse on board ( though hes just an observer really , i wouldnt let them section him again , but the brain injury unit wouldnt have him eith er to do a specialist assessment . It crazy , they didnt listen to the best way to care for him and it ended like this .
It was all i could do not to just take him home but I know for him its not the best in the long run, I have chronic fatigue and depression and anxiety and had just got a grant for a break HAHA ...
last week was a round of meetings i met so many people providers whilke being told we were to get out of the flat ..we are still here , and have got a new place fingers crossed he moves again ! next Wednesday .....his anxiety is so high and i feel so sorry for him . apparently i am a sandwich carer as care for my mum as well !!!!
well enough of that just wondered if anyone has any spare hugs going
