Sorry it’s been so long for an update but so much has been going on and yet so little. We were waiting for so many things to be decided and I didn’t want to negatively influence anything.
Fistly we have now sold the house (yahoo) and we complete at the end of June. This is a bitter sweet conclusion as we really wanted to stay here but all efforts have failed and at least we will walk away with no debts. We tried lots of different avenues including Kate Green the MP for this area but we are not even allowed to have a named Social worker in this Conservative ran Council. We have tried charity’s Housing Assciations, estate agents, letting agencies, FSA, building society’s and the list goes on and all to no avail.
A couple of months ago I was picking up another great curry from “The Princess of Hearts” in Ashton on Mersey. Taz the owner, who knows the background asked what area we were looking for. I said beggars can’t be choosers and he offered a house in Cheadle Hulme. I went to look at it the next day and though it looked OK was way off the area for NHS, social work and family. This next move is for 5 years and I did hesitate. I was hoping for a last minute save to keep us in the area but in the end I had to give up and Taz has become our saviour.
We move in at end of month and the house is being prepared at present but we need still need a wet room fitted and ramps etc. I need to register with social services. NHS and other services in the next couple of weeks to enable the Hospitial bed and hoist to be in place.
The big news in the last few months is that Debbie has been awarded “Continuing Health Care” which does mean that long term, Debbie’s care should be sorted what ever happens in the future. This decision is so important for both of us and should help us build a care plan for her.
Lots of people have volunteered to help us move and at the next update will be during the move. See you all soon.
