After a dreadful night I have explained (yet again) to my mum we cannot continue as we are! She seems to have finally accepted I'm right.....
Today I need to (again) explain to my Dad we have to start using the hospice services and also that he must reduce their savings of approx £25k right away! We need night carers urgently! And I know it's awful to say but I want the council (UK) to provide the care!! Without cost to my parents!!
If this doesn't happen I honestly don't know what we are going to do......the bed and clothes had to be changed 3 times last night, the stress is starting to take its toll on mum and me!!
What I want to know is:
Will the council provide night care (free) if the savings are under £23k?
Will the council start snooping and looking into any movement of monies?
What happens if a care home is eventually required? Financially and do care homes look after people with Psp? Maybe these are questions for the hospice??
I'm sooooooo sorry for asking all of the above but I honestly don't know what to do for the best?? Life is becoming impossibly hard and as it is my poor dad isn't getting the care he should be! (That's many because they've refused it up til now)! But I'm literally at the end of my tether and will probably breakdown or end up in an institution if we don't get help!!!!!
Thx in advance
