Last week the home support agency switch over was finally sorted out, my support hours are the same as they were previously (5 hrs per week). Cause the switch over took so long to be sorted out.. I now have 3-4 weeks from when the new agency had been approved of unused hours (approx 15-20hrs) till when they organised the worker Im in a fix as Im way behind everything here (my medical appointments and blood tests are behind from early Jan I have ones from then which were supposed to be done not done yet), so much unpacking to still do from the house move, ALL my floors still havent been vaccumed and washed since I moved in Jan etc etc, when she came yesterday she didnt get to take me shopping as i had another blood test..so I got her to take me to do that (unfasting my other one is a fasting one).. so I could really use those buildup hours. The big issue is as it is I have to split my 5 hrs into two lots of 2.5hrs as I cant manage longer without getting sick to the point of a complete collapse (I also need a rest day between the home support my boyfriend comes on two days too during the week and helps, so i have no spare time during the week to pace out more home support time (and DisabilitySA wont fund it on weekend, thou I usually crash if doing things 3 days in a row.. I need COMPLETE do nothing rest days in between 2 days of pacing things). Last week around the 2 hr point of having the home support worker here.. I collapsed and was left unable to walk from the home support. Just telling a new person what needs doing is very draining etc and my old support worker used to also help me at times with my pacing as she could see on occassions before I knew.. that I was about to collapse (my boyfriend often helps in that way too when he's around.. telling me to slow down). The new one cant tell when its okay to be talking to me and when it isnt. If I dont use the spare hours up within the 4 weeks they were given.. I loose them ..so will loose 15 hrs of home support my house could do with (they wont hold them till Im better able health wise to be able to use them). Another issue.. is thou the states gov agency approved the home support org to take me shopping.. they've limited it to my city suburb!! There isnt things like even a hardware store in this suburb. (the support worker wasnt supposed to take me to the blood test place yesterday as it was outside of my suburb but she did it in the end as she couldnt get hold of her boss). Im wondering how others manage with their home support? and what I could do. Should I tryt o get the agency to send me two people here at once?? seeing I cant have them around me too long without it causing me a collapse? (It sucks.. Im worst cause I had to wait to get the home support transfered over and that has worsened me as I had to do more for those weeks (it sucks as I was on new supplements too and they were improving me and now due to all this Im worst then when I started them) . I used to manage the 2.5 hrs twice a week and now arent even coping with that due to that brief loss of the home support. Im even seriously considering saying I cant do that 2.5hrs after last weeks collapse due to it). ........... I saw the new contract the other day and all its saying is "home support" and no longer mentions helping me get to any medical appointments at all. So im going to have to try to at least get approval to be taken to the local hospital or a local docor (local hospital is out of my suburb). I had more things closer to me before I was advised to move to Adelaide (hospital, hardware etc etc... when one moves into a home Im finding that Im constanty having to get stuff from the handware.. I havent even got curtain hooks and stuff yet).
