This week is an opportunity to move forward following Thursday’s Best Interest Meeting with three meetings already scheduled:
Tuesday: Maureen’s Care Coordinator is here with an Occupational Therapist to give us advice on how to make our home a safer and more stimulating environment.
Wednesday: I have a meeting with a Carer Support Worker to explore how she might be able to make my load a little lighter.
Thursday: I have a meeting with my Admiral Nurse as the start of a schedule of fortnightly meetings to review my role as Maureen’s Care Partner. These meetings will offer the support/supervision that I have been seeking.
It also seems likely that I will need to meet our Key Worker at some time during the week for a progress report on the arrangements for Maureen’s care during the first of my long weekend breaks. The thought of a break in a couple of weeks will hopefully keep me going as Maureen’s presentation becomes even more challenging by the day!
