Even when issues have been correctly identified often the help is unavailable or in some shocking cases so inappropriate that they in fact make the child's mental health worse.
Evidently it is.
"Minor aids and adaptations
- We will complete minor aids and adaptations within 31 calendar days of receiving a brief"
I have finally had enough of fighting and have given both the Housing Association and the Occupational Therapist one last chance to contact be by the end of the week before I pass my frustrations onto my MP.
Watch this space.
Yesterday someone from out Housing Association came our to measure up all our external doors in preparation for changing them for the Aids and Adaptions needed to our home.
I was extremely impressed with the choice of door made available to us, we could choose the colour, window type, if I wished them to open outward or inwards and even if we would like a cat flap installed! It was like being in door choice heaven, well not really, but you get the general idea.
The workman wrote down everything I asked for and even added some notes to the job sheet when I asked for spacific things, like for the work to take place while Ana is at school.
So hopefully this is a sign that the much needed work on our home is about to start taking place. I hope the long wait has been worth it.
