Have I the right to live in the community?
I don't know what to do. I am sixty-five who suffers from Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy, Social Services wants to do either flats side by side - own carers (which I didn't believe I will have my carers for long, also they want to cut their pay), I know if they move that I will just the will to live is that what they want? Live in carer (live in carer - without using showers, cooking their own food, washing their own clothes) which my sister and I don't want. I keep carers aware most of the night now, at least they go home to bed, whereas a live in carer cannot, isn't that extremely dangerous for me, I honestly thought Social Services where there to protect vulnerable people and not putting them in danger. This means I won't be going out or going to any of my Doctor / Hospital appointments because I will not put myself in danger because they are extremely tired. They took it off me under false pretences, I never been told by anyone from Social Services that I can appeal for my self-funding back, surely, I have the right to appeal it was, they who took it away. two of ex carers made up lies about me. Then suddenly Social Services dropped he eleven allegations and said that came up with that I wasn't paying my contributions towards my care, my sister had a phone call from Social Services to say stop paying y contributions and my sister went her bank and did this. I keep asking myself why this the only occasion is they did not send us a letter to confirm this, they do any other time, and we always keep them. I was told by Social Services that I won't be allowed to appeal why I haven't done anything wrong, and I can prove it, but they just will not listen or look at my paperwork, why? Haven't I got the right to stay in the community and be self-funding, my trustworthy have been for years. Please forgive my typing I'm physically disabled and I'm crying, please help me.
