My dear friends........you may find this info useful to fight your cases against CHC being granted, or not for that matter.
My best friend has worked in the care industry/social services all her life and it was her advice that armoured me when the CHC review came around.
This is a quick but essential tip.......
When the assessors are ticking off the form they should do so as if the patient was receiving no help........ie....they said to me that mum had no choking issues because her meals were liquidised. WRONG!! IT WAS BECAUSE SHE HAD A HIGH RISK OF CHOKING THAT HER MEALS WERE LIQUIDISED.
What I’m saying is........make sure they are assessed without care in place because that is how it should be done. You’ll find our loved ones score so much higher!!!!!
I hope this helps you to get the correct care package that is required to make your loved one more comfortable.
Keep up the good work my lovelies,
Much love Michele xxx
