I posted here a few weeks ago when my father was in hospital with pneumonia. He’s now in a care home with nursing, but was refused CHC. I’m appealing, but this stuff is so wearing! Trying to support my mother as she adjusts to living alone, filling in the financial assessment stuff for the local authority, driving up and down congested motorways to visit, trying to hang on to a bit of my own life… I wish I had more optimism that expending my last dregs of energy on the CHC appeal would do any good.
At least he’s being well looked after, and my mother is less exhausted and stressed than when she was struggling to keep him at home.
I wrote to the CHC people, but have just had all their forms to fill in for the appeal.
