Mr and Mrs Perrie | Derby
We were having a stressful time with our mum who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, she got to the state where she could not manage her personal hygiene, eating etc. The social services were sent to her, as she would not let her family help. Social Services wanted her to go into a nursing home straightaway.
We had a number of different carers come into attend to mum, but she had a number of falls and had to be admitted to hospital each time. As she got worse we knew she should go into a nursing home, but we were obviously worried about the charges for these homes.
We were told about Compass CHC, so we gave them a call and explained the situation and we were told that we had a good case for CHC, so we asked Compass to take our case on. They gathered all the information needed from mum's GP, hospitals etc. It was a stressful time for us, as we had not done this before, but all at Compass were kind and patient with us at all times. They kept us up to date with everything and we were represented at a funding meeting.
Later along the line Compass won the case for full funding for our mum, who is now 100 years old.
We recommend Compass CHC to anyone in our situation.
Thanks to all at Compass CHC.
