    Leave of absence

    Hi gents, sorry for my leave of absence, been to Snowdonia with the AEA. Great time ! Arrived back to find trouble at mill, my mother has accused her carerers of pinching money, so they have said because their reputation is at stake they will withdraw their services if it continues. This is nothing new she puts stuff down and can't remember where she's put it. I have convinced her that if she gives me power of attorney,I will deal with her finances without her having to hold cash in the home and losing it. So my attendance on site may be limited for a while, because of having to run up and down to Lowestoft to sort things out.

    Best wishes, Bob.
    I told myself that I should stop drinking, but I'm not about to listen to a drunk who talks to himself.

    Dealt with loads of that stuff Bob, never easy to deal with. If you are happy that the carers are not stealing stuff, and if they are professional carers they should not be talking about 'withdrawing care' but they should be aware that old folk do often get confused and both you and they accept the situation. A few weeks down the line you can carry out your own discreet checks to see if money is going missing, if it does, get them in court.

    Indefatigable is a long name -the village had a longer one?
    I just don't understand why they won't shut the hell up while I practice my people skills....

    Re: Leave of absence

    Rubber dicked again ! Before going up to Lowestoft. I phoned up the Lowestoft Doctors Surgery, to see if my mothers GP could sign the Power of Attorney form in regards to being a certified professional .I was told by the reception staff that he would do this no problem. On arriving they said, leave it with us and we will post it back to you when it's been signed as the doctor may have to assess your mother. No problem with that, then this morning I get a phone call saying Doctor won't sign your form because she's been referred to the memory team, you will have to get them to sign it ! I thought that these people looked after the welfare of vulnerable people, not put obstacles in the way of those trying to assist them. Again unforgivable I lost my temper, and told them to return the form to me by post as I wasn't prepared to travel 200 miles to be rubber dicked again by the Memory Team, saying its not down to us it's her GPs job. So the saga continues !
