TALKING CARE? HAVE YOUR SAY! NEED AN ANSWER?

Home and Residential care advice

People who have previously had to arrange care are often eager to share their knowledge and experience with those who are starting their journey.

There is nothing more reassuring than speaking to someone who has “been through it before” and it can be a great comfort knowing you are not alone at this potentially stressful time.

Have you had to arrange care before? Can you offer any advice or share your knowledge with those who need it?

If you need help or simply wish to tell your story, please don’t hesitate to post below. Remember, people want to listen and are keen to help if they can.

  • Will the carers take mum out shopping if requested or to the library?

    I have just approached the delicate subject of talking to my mother-in-law about finally getting a carer to visit for half an hour a day to check shes taken her medication correctly (sticking on too many powerful pain killer patches!!). After a quite a few cups of tea, she was more amenable and more interested in the fact that could the carer take her out shopping or go to the library.

    I think it would be good for her mental health just to get out in the car and see other people out and about. Will, they? Can they? are they insured?

    Not all carers will have business insurance for their client's but it doesn't mean they can't get a taxi to where they want to go (at the expense of your mother-in-law), you might need to ask for more than half an hour though to cover the trips.
