As regards to Carmelo Garcia’s article (Hereford Instances, March 4) lack of entry to Persevering with Care Funding.
That is nothing new to me – my late pricey spouse was quadriplegic, severely epileptic, pricey and so forth, and we have been instructed in 2004 that she didn’t meet the factors for continung care funding by the NHS – this I appeared, dozens of letters, overview panel at our dwelling by a Coventry panel. They then determined she did meet standards, however not apology and we have been nonetheless with out take care of an additional two years and 9 months as an acceptable care company couldn’t be discovered – workers not educated sufficient to take care of my spouse.
Then once more in 2015, care companies wouldn’t tackle the care of my spouse, so we have been left once more with no care provision for over two years. I took the matter up with the Parliamentary Ombudsman who awarded reimbursement of the quantity I had spent from my small pension and I obtained this quantity simply in time to pay for my pricey spouse’s funeral in April 2018.
You possibly can see from the above talked about that this lack of Persevering with Care Funding has been occurring in Herefordshire for a few years. The system is so drawn out and the individuals working don’t perceive what impact all of the stress has on the household and carers concerned. It wants altering now, earlier than any extra disabled individuals and the households need to endure the whole psychological pressure they inflict.
