wow ppl are actualy taking the time to vote it down, what is wrong with you ppl?
why has this been moved to misc?
Just a side note.. Many think it cost a fortune to get day care.. Ie... They go for the day to a home to give you time for a rest or for a few days but it don't. It's a stress going through the finances ect but even if you have a few grand stashed away (20k+) on this case the cost is very affordable. In this case £380 for the week... Then it was possible to go for a day or weekend as your on the system. Probably varies in different parts of UK but that's what happened here... I was shocked as I thought £1000 ish....

My grandma goes to 2 day cares.
The council run one costs £44 a day, plus £4.50 for the lunch. And a £5/ week brokerage fee. So about £53 a day for that one that she goes to twice a week. 10.30am til about 4.
Then she goes to a charity run daycare, 9.30 to 3, that's £33 lunch included and £6 return on their minibus.
So we spend about £500 a month on these day cares, but it gives me a break 3x a week to go do stuff without her.

The equivalent in home care cost would be at least 2 or 3 times that, and at daycare she gets to interact with other people, gets fed, and do activities.

And the council run daycare offers respite care at the residential side for about £900 for 7 days with all the fees, less if you pay for more days at once as £700 is the cover for the days, and £200 odd in fees.

All good advice - only thing I would add is probably best to not let them hide the eggs for the hunt.

I have asked the mods to return this to freebies as it will raise more attention there, then return it to misc after Easter so I do not gain any rep from heat that will keep the haters happy who reported it
Please support this going back to freebies for 2 weeks so as many people as possible see this

So if you live in west Teessdie you can get free services here

We've done all of that except the trust thing. My granny gave us all our inheritance when she was first diagnosed. We've just sold her house though and the money will have to go to her care costs.
We only get a 50% council reduction

What a lovely comment to a vulnerable person. Happy Easter.

What a lovely comment to a vulnerable person. Happy Easter.



Wasn't aware that BillySollox, who my comment is addressed to, is a vulnerable person. Maybe you have knowledge that I don't. It's a bit early for Easter, unless you're a supermarket of course, so I'll just wish you happy-end-of-the-weekend.
It costs £750 a week were I work and that’s cheap for the company some of the newer homes cost over £1000 a week in some parts of the country.
