There are times when I want to scream at those jobsworths in the Care Sector. Today’s carer has been told off for collecting some essentials from Tesco. Her Agency phoned to remind her she is here to sit with Maureen.
I have flu and am finding it difficult to stand. Maureen is very poorly as the infection is wreaking havoc with her presentation. She is worried whenever I’m not close at hand. Would the Agency want me to shop when I’m unwell and leave Maureen with a stranger? Seems to me that dementia awareness is lacking somewhere and it isn’t here!
When Lynne arrived at our door for the first time yesterday she said: ‘I know nothing about Maureen’. Then she had to work from a temporary Care Plan : thank goodness our considerate regular Agency provides our carers during the week!
