    Hello you lovelies

    In answer to your question Ellie mum experienced no problem in receiving CHC funding (with no upper limit). The problem was with the CHC allowing an Agency to provide the care required at home. What should have been a two month hospital admission last year turned into ten months thanks to the CHC and Health Case Management Team. Mum was medically fit for discharge but it took eight months of fighting against a Nursing Home admission. Apparently the Nursing Hone placements are purchased ‘on block’ making them a darn sight cheaper!.

    Oh my days Juliette, that is utterly appalling. Your mum isn't a commodity but a real person with real feelings and a family with the same.

    The only thing I can say is a feeble Good Luck in getting your mum home.

    Love Ellie.
