Apologies in advance as this might be longer than originally intended as I don’t want to drip feed.
I live at the opposite end of the country to an elderly parent who is becoming increasingly frail and unable to cope.
A social worker has been to assess the situation and will put thrice daily visits in place for medication and suchlike.
However my parent also needs help with a weekly shop. Apparently cash needs to be made available in my parent’s home so that a carer can do the required shopping.
SW suggested that I might ‘consider’ making a 1000 mile round trip to deposit cash in in my parent’s house- needless to say I am not amenable to this suggestion.
I’ve looked at pre-payment cards but overall I don’t think this is the answer. Online shopping is not feasible for many reasons.
I am completely stumped at to how to manage this therefore any suggestions/experiences will be gratefully received.
