At 10.30 tomorrow morning I intended to give a month’s notice that I am no longer prepared to be Maureen’s Care Partner under the current arrangements. I am posting this information because there is no guarantee I will be able to make the meeting with my Admiral Nurse and G P. Despite assurances yesterday the Care Agency have not confirmed there will be adequate care in place for Maureen tomorrow morning.
Yesterday was the straw that finally broke this Care Partner’s back. My visit to the Care Agency confirmed my worst fears: they don’t understand dementia and are working within procedures that are not fit for purpose
I am giving notice because I love my wife. The current arrangements for support place an unworkable burden on me and cannot be sustained. We are both entitled to a much better support than this under the Care Act.
On the first of May if workable arrangements have not been put in place I will remove myself to a place of safety until they are.
