jeddy 95 years old, can't have a bath on NHS! (137* d) RE: 95 years old, can't have a bath on NHS! 06 Oct 09

by no means am i lizzie bashing here.
it just seems to me to more about lizzie getting what she wants instead of vi getting what she needs.

for example, just because they would not fit handles have they recommended another agency take over vi's plight?

we have seen here that the handles requested might not be up to the task but we have not been told by lizzie if anything else was suggested.

it is very annoying when something that is needed does not get provided.
however i am sure there are better ways of getting this information than shouting and swearing at someone.

i am feeling sorry for the woman who was subjected to this ranting.
it must have been very intimidating to be in someones home on your own and to be set upon like that, from what we have been told she handled herself with dignity and more patience than i would have had.

lizzie, i hope that you get something that will help, there have been suggestions galore here.
maybe look into finding a product yourself and seeing whether the local council or social services can help pay and install it for you?

dealing with the red tape people (i would have called them buerotcrats, but i can't spell it) is never easy and you will find that you have to do most of the chasing. but you have to rememeber that most councils have been restricted money wise. and cannot help everyone the way that the employees would like to.

take care all
