I am trying to organise a big package of care at home for my Dad who is being badly cared for in a residential home following fracturing his pelvis.
Organising these was my job for many years - but things have changed!!
I am finding it almost impossible to find an agency that can provide this care - the only one that has the capacity has a slightly dubious CQC inspection report in terms of recruitment practices and continuity of care. However the carers were rated as "kind and respectful" so that is good.
The only other option that has come up is an individual who provides paid care and whose client has recently died. She comes highly recommended by a local District Nurse. Does anyone know whether paid home carers are obliged to register? - I cannot find this info on the net. And would my father then be obliged to take on the role of employer in the sense of having to organise NI etc.?
In my day we would help people set up care even if they were self-funding - but that was the good old days! No such blooming luck now!!
