Beyond fed up.
Can’t say depressed, as it would be used against me.
I now have to try, to get Issy back to the position, she was in, before, the ‘red mark, the size of a fist’ lady, abandoned her.
And, lodge another official complaint.
And do this, in between, the waves of horror, and nausea, that wash over me, when I envisage Issy’s fate.
Which are even more intense, when she is near.
The latest letter, one of the many documents, I have found, almost impossible to read.
Is from, the assistant head of the LA services.
The one, who recently rang weekly, and, informed me, why the education package, fist lady and co, had disappeared.
She was the funding lady, in the kitchen, who informed us, the LA, would provide education ( Measured Lady),with ‘our pot of money’, for ‘personal services’.
We paid handsomely, as no doubt did the public purse.
The measured lady, had said, it ‘wouldn’t be cheap’,
For what ?
4 months of meetings arranging it, a no show hardly for 2 weeks, by one PA.
And then to be spied on, lied to, and, about, and finally accused of assaulting our daughter.
All behind our backs.
This services manager, insists, she rang the GP.
But the GP, gave the adult services social worker’s name.
The Service Manager, ( her boss),had dealt with our complaint, by choosing, ‘not to look at the ‘record’ first’.
And, then sent us a letter, not about our complaint.
But her ‘concern’, at Isabel appearing naked in the kitchen, on the way to her bath.
This funding lady’s letter, gave the reasons, why ‘education’ had disappeared.
‘The reason they have given is that they find Finola’s expressions of points of view and the manner that this takes place, leaves them feeling vulnerable. They believe their actions are discredited by Finola when either one of them is not in your home, they feel this is undermining and makes them anxious to be around Finola’.
What points of view? The ones on the articles, brought weekly by the Lodge Lady ?
The ones being groomed from me ?
Am I, not allowed to voice dissatisfaction/frustration, at the appalling way, Issy/we, have been treated, in my own kitchen ?
‘Vulnerable’ to what?
Most of the time, I am working in the lounge.
In what way, am I undermining them?
What ‘actions’ have they taken ?,
Other than tickle Issy, blow bubbles, and play music, alone in her bedroom, largely ignored.
Neither worker, was even given Issy’s care plan, or, apparently, any information about her.
‘They observe that when Finola is expressing her points of view Isabel gets distressed, she cries and rocks in her bedroom and whilst this is pointed out to Finola it does not stop the negative verbal outpouring towards all services’.
Isabel does not observe my ‘points of view’.
They are made in the kitchen with door closed, when Isabel, is in her bedroom, with her door closed.
As this makes it impossible for them to distress Issy, how could it have been pointed out to me ?
‘The personal assistants would like to have suggested to Finola on at least one occasion that this expression of frustration is halted but do not feel able to say anything to Finola which might cause further tension. They feel scared. This has led them to take the view that they no longer feel safe in the household’
If, they would like to have suggested it once, but were too scared.
How then, did they dare, to point out, my my views were upsetting Issy?
These workers, had never mentioned my negativity, instead encouraging it, with articles, and stories about care scandals.
‘You will be aware that this is a further agency expressing their concerns regarding the challenges faced in offering direct care to Isabel in the home, advising they are planning to withdraw their services’
A further agency ?.
Over 18 months, we have had some 25 different workers in the kitchen from a single large agency- Reed.
No one, worker, or agency, had ever mentioned any ‘concerns’.
We were never given the reason, for this agency’s withdrawal in October last year.
In fact this very services manager had asked us why they had withdrawn in our funding meeting in October.
And an email from our social worker, saying they had terminated their (very lucrative £50 per hour) contract.
Even she had said, they were’ not perhaps the most appropriate agency’.
The social services could not prove what they are saying.
But it appears they don’t have to.
How then could I prove this is all lies?
Other than, the fact it was totally improbable,
And, not mentioned before.
Remember this agency was paid over £100,000, £24 per hour for their services. workers £7,50 an hour
So, what do we have here.
A service manager, who has provided an inadequate service, is eliciting evidence, from support staff, to show neglect, and abuse.
To cover up inadequate, spying, making up serious assault allegation, service provision, to facilitate, the removal of Isabel to earn £ 4000 per week, in secret, drugged, abused encagement.
The evidence being;
1/ Social Services cannot support mother at home, as workers refuse to work with mother, as they are undermined, and scared.
2/ Mother is emotionally abusing Isabel, by distressing her with her opinions, and continuing to do so, in the face of this distress,even after, it has been pointed out to her.
And the truth?
