Social services assessment

Post by firemonkey » Thu Feb 01, 2018 9:20 am

Had social services assessment this morning. After discussion it was decided to down the direct payment route. That was because the social worker said it would take loner going down the social services route. She said a new system had been put in place that was having hiccups due to politicising between the various people involved.

We were told it would allow for more flexibility which my stepdaughter said was a good thing. My step daughter asked if she could be in charge of it as she said I would panic over the administration of it.

We discussed hours and my stepdaughter said 7 hours would do (5x1 + 2 hour slot). Whether we ultimately go for that however will depend on what is charged. We had discussed the financial implications before the social worker had arrived.

My stepdaughter said she would try and get the care agency she works for to do it. As she knows and would be able to vouch for the people coming in.
