God i want to scream!!! my husband is now confined to bed and his carers are now coming in 4 times a day.The idea is to re-position him due to pressure sores. His legs are now in the fetal position.The problem is they are not doing there job.When they come they check his pad and convene ask if he is ok then leave.I had to show 2 carers how to re-position him because they didnt know how to.The other day i popped out (i left my son sitting with him) when i came back both carers were watching the TV because my husband was asleep so they said they couldnt re-position him but were going to wait the half hour they are paid for i said just wake him up. Then a District Nurse turned up as the care company had rang them because my husband has a bad sore in his groin area.I was not told anything about the sore nor was i told that a District Nurse had been called and there is no reference to this sore in his carers care notes.When they started coming here they were great and all the staff are really nice but now his needs are more complex they cannot do there job properly.The other night my husband was shouting in pain when i walked in the room the carer had picked him up while the other carer changed his pad.I asked what the hell he thought he was doing he said because my husband was light he found it easier to just pick him up.i told him to put him down and to get out.I rang the care company first thing yesterday morning i was told the care manager would get in touch but she hasnt i also rang my social worker yesterday afternoon and i am waiting for her to call back.i feel as if i am living a nightmare.
