do u kow i have been waiting over 10 days for an OT to call about a home assessment fgor dh. making me angry. i called again on monday and someone should've called me back quickly as we are urgent (due to the fact dh could die at any given moment) and they still havent called back.

We have had a social worker now since December, core assessment and care plan agreed 2months ago, SW is now hard to get hold of, referrals for respite are still in process, we have a care plan but nothing has been initiated, and our referral to the OT was done 5 months ago, still no news ...

I do have sympathy for our SW, she is one of many that are overstretched too many caseloads and not enough SW's to cover them. They have to prioritise them, but as we are not a serious child protection case we are not a priority. I would just like her think that if the promised respite doesnt come off, then she might have a serious child protection case on her hands, as I might finally lose the plot and be carried off to the funny farm.

we have heard NOTHING either

infact I am not even pissed off about it, she gave me some bullshit story about how they would help when i really was very down and tbh it did give me some relief just thinking about it. Oh balls, am dreading holidays though

AIW, what I don't understand is that the Disabled Children's Team and Child Protection are different areas that can overlap, therefore there should be some funding and services for both (in theory!).
