Well, we have started down this route. The Hospice community nurse, said it was time we tried and she would contact the district nurse. The same one that last time they referred me to her, got quite stroppy, because she said, unless he had an open sore, then they were only there for end of life care! Nice lady!
Anyway, got a call this morning, says we had been referred for a CHC assessment, could she come and see us today! 20 minutes later, there she was!
So we have had our pre-assessment and surprise, surprise we passed. So she now referring us on to whoever, for the next one! So you never know, I might actually start to get some serious help. But it really sucks. Why can they provide help, when the state is paying, but none, if you are self funding? What's the problem with my buck, surely it's the same as the government. Or is it that these companies get away with charging stupid prices, that the general public would not put up with!?????
Lots of love
