Today I visited my OH - he was so weak that he could not lift his head or feed himself or make his voice audible.
I am selling our home to make it possible for him to stay where he is getting good care.
And then I received a letter from the local authority indicating that they are prepared to pay their £238 per week, and that I am obliged to pay the "top-up" in the form of a third-party contribution of £950 per week. It also said that if I defaulted on this payment SSD would move him to a home costing their ceiling of £573 per week. So - they would drag him out of the home where he is settled and getting good care. A man who is slowly dying in misery.
Well - let me tell you, heartless LA, that you will never do that - just never. I will lie down in front of the transport before you will do that.
How can they write such a letter to me at such a dreadful time? Is this meant to be a civilised nation?
