Thanks to everyone who took time to comment on my post earlier in week about our agency giving 5 days notice.
The social worker has worked so hard this week trying to get care in to start Monday. As she put it we have been thrown into an emergency situation. .
Anyway to cut long story well 3 day story short... She has managed to get the agency who Admiral nurse recommended to take Mum on. They are very expensive so she is coming out next week to discuss options with us as we won't be able to have the 4 calls a day with them long term but she wants us to have them for as many calls as possible. She had been very impressed by them.
The manager came out yesterday to quickly meet us and explained first few weeks will be a bit erratic as they normally don't take on care this quick. They rang to let me know manager was running late. That impressed me straight away lol. They also introduce the carers to Mum before they start the shift. Another good touch I feel. She said unfortunately we will have to use more carers than we would like initially as rotas already been done, apparently will be 6. I was like we have more than that in one day currently as no consistency.
Please keep all crossed this works out for the better in the end after what has been a very worrying week.
Added bonus they have cared for people before with PSP. I gave her a leaflet and she said oh it is similar to PSP (Mum has Cbd) we have had clients before with that. Felt much more at ease and probably why Admiral nurse said to try get with them.
Love to all
