Hi, my name is Baby65! Discussion on adult social care
Hello everyone. I would like to pick the brains of all of you, especially the older folks on the subject of adult social care. This is something I may have to face in the future as my beloved husband is also my carer. I would be interested in hearing of people's experiences of negotiating this minefield especially the financial side of things. How do you manage to find the dosh for bills and cope with having to contribute towards care costs and how much do they charge you on average and is there anything you can claim to help. The prospect of reaching a time in my life where I may lose my precious hubby and have to run the gauntlet of the social care system, live a paupers existence and manage life blind as I am is driving me to mental illness and misery
