Apologies for not going into detail. I wasn’t sure whether to say everything in my first post or not. Thanks for all the replies and apologies again for not having got back on sooner.
So the 3 people I care for are my Mum who is 67 - mobility issues, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, my sister who is in her 40’s - autism, mental age of a teenager, and my brother who is in his 30’s - mental health issues and unable to urinate without a catheter.
I didn’t check google. But I will do now. I hope they have some that are running during the day.
Caring wise, I am mainly after support. Finances I have no issues with and housing is OK, to an extent. I’ve been begging Mum to move with me into a smaller house or a bungalow but it falls upon deaf ears or she just ignores me for a week or two after.
Mum has very limited mobility. It’s been like this for forever. She can only walk a bit before she has to rest. She’s also got type 2 diabetes and now has rheumatoid arthritis which has limited her mobility even more. Her arthritis has gotten worse with time and she struggles to do even vary basic tasks like opening doors or holding a cup. I cook and clean, have to take her to all her appointments etc. She’s still able to dress and go to the toilet herself. However, when her arthritis flares up (sometimes her legs go and she can’t move them), I have to put adult nappies on her and take them off etc.
She’s on low rate PIP now. I don’t know what a needs assessment is. Sorry, is that something I should know about? I’ve never had a carers assessment done. I will have to google these things when I get time.
With regards to the noisy neighbours, the noise is unbearable but it’s Mum’s house and she is adamant she will not be moved. The Council wouldn’t help. I contacted them twice and they said slamming doors all day everyday and running around is normal household noise (I used to be on a noisy neighbours forum and this was more or less the standard response for most people who were unhappy with neighbour noise). They also don’t take an interest unless you are in Social Housing and ours is privately owned as is the animals house next door. What did you mention about special rules if someone is disabled?
Thanks for the link and your kind words. I will have a look through later. I’m in the Kirklees area so Huddersfield and Dewsbury but I am more than happy to travel to one.
I will look into the Social Services signposting. I actually work quite close with Social Services so can chase it up at work.
Thanks for that. I don’t mind travelling to York, it could be a nice day out.
