The Rehab people were due to see Mum last Friday (the day of the storm) but sensibly did not due to roads being covered with fallen trees, and then there was a nice power cut all night and all day. This week was half term, which for some reason meant that they could not visit.
Why is everything so ***ing slow and hard?
The OT and Physio were meant to be coming this morning, but Mum suffered a migraine so nope. I think that the migraine was caused by stress and being threatened by the office that provides her carers that she must accept a new one who she feels physically unsafe with...or else. Mum has been wound up over the weekend with disturbed sleep and appetite.
Another tick in the box - I guess that is what happens when you separate the doers from the decision makers. They are not very sensitive to human factors, such as people not wanting to have falls or objecting to being told that "your knees are in the way" or "it does not matter if you fall as you have carpet".
I am not making this up - she was told these things.
