    As a long term carer of my elderly Mother and Stepfather I think you are definitely going in the right direction. Like most carers I meet, I think Social Services do a very good job under usually severely restricted budgetary limitations.. A synopsis of the case and preferably regular contact by a Social Worker familiar with the case would help practically and improve the morale of carers who so often become socially isolated from their peer groups.
    Norfolk CC have a single point contact system that does at the moment work in a very limited way but could be improved with practice and finance..

      I refer to to Stephen Dodge comments and suggest he is indeed very fortunate, 'Twitter' would certainly contradict his comments, but then those Caring for those suffering from Mental Illness have a different experience.

      Adult Services at Birmingham City Council does not offer any support to the clients let alone the carers.
      The vulnerable adult that I am providing emergency care for has been refused help aids visual impairment assessment , along with care to attend life saving medical appointments.

      Equality, Diversity, along with Safe Guarding Vulnerable Adults is only words on a piece of paper at BCC.
      It is time all carers spoke out as Council's are taking advantage of kindness and replacing it as part of a cost cutting exercise. Like Ms Baker those who are caring for those with critical care needs and disbilities have a very different experience of this "Safe Guarding " agency.
