    • Paul - totally agree with everything Macca has said.  As infuriating as it is, you need to stay calm otherwise you'll be labelled as something other than a concerned partner.   Love and hugs to both you and Lin xxx
    • Hi Paul,   Glad to hear that Lin continues to improve.  Not so happy to hear your story about the 'carers.'  You were right to report them and it is better to do it quickly so the problem is addressed and the offenders brought to book.   Please keep it in context though - don't let the bad behaviour of a couple of individuals spoil the overall picture which is Lin's continued improvement.   Don't forget all the good stuff that has been done, whilst at the same time doing what you can to root out these unsavoury individuals.  When these things happen, I always query the supervision and management. How was it that they allowed this to develop and happen and how long it has been going on for?   Rise above it by continuing to demand and receive the best for Lin.  I hope the individuals concerned are properly dealt with, either by going, or if they are allowed to stay, that they have had remedial training with appropriate warnings and supervision.   Please let us know how you get on.   Best wishes,   Macca
    • hi lovely Sami   you are so right and that's what I have been witnessing it really makes my blood boil   its the sicko's that need a dose of prison im sorry
    • Paul, so pleased that Lin continues to improve and extremely happy and proud of you for speaking up against neglect.  I did the same for my hubby last year after his motorbike accident and he was moved to the Rehab unit within days.  When it's a CARING profession then Care should be paramount, I hate that some people go in to it because they like the control feeling and then the sickos that like to abuse vulnerable people!!
    • I haven't checked back on this thread, but members do need to inform their car insurance company about their SAH .... However, if you've been given the all clear from the DVLA and declared fit to drive, I believe that they can't discriminate or increase your premium. My premium wasn't increased and they were happy with the written declaration from the DVLA.   However, I would say from my own past experiences with insurance companies and their avoidance of paying out on a claim, that it's better to have all the facts on record.
