No Care at Cyngor Gwynedd Council.

No automatic alt text available.


As most of you know, Anthea is due a second hip replacement in a weeks time. She has already had one 6 years ago. As advised by the Hospital we contacted GWYNEDD COUNTY COUNCIL to arrange home help & care. Despite repeated requests by the two of us, GCC have REFUSED to carry out an assessment regarding her needs before the operation. They state that since her last op six years ago, policy has changed. Apparently they now cannot assess her needs until she returns home as they will not know what her needs will be. 

We have already been told that Anth will be non-weight bearing for six weeks. The house layout has not changed since her last op. She cannot cook hot meals herself still. The op will be an exact replica of the last one. My point is, we know what to expect.

However GCC have refused to meet with us until AFTER the op. So, with her operation being on a Saturday morning, she could be out on Sunday evening. I leave for work at 7.20. How is Anthea supposed to answer the door to the assessment team if they call? How is she to have a hot meal? Or shower? These are all problem areas.

Well the Head of Adult, Health and Wellbeing had answers:

– I could take (unpaid) time off work
– we could pay for private care
– we could rely on family members
– we could rely on friends

or, allegedly, she knows 90 year olds that need NO care, so why should a 39 year old need help? (she was particularly proud of this fact.
Proud that 90 year olds were left with NO help, care and support! PROUD😡)

AND Anth shouldn’t shower for six weeks (funny really, the hospital encouraged her to shower BEFORE she left). Odd how this individual knows better than the experts.

Can I point out that Anth has worked for 21 years with very few days off.

I have worked for 24 years since leaving Uni and went 18+ years without a day off. We both pay our taxes. Yet you will see here a copy of the letter denying us a meeting BEFORE her op. The Head of this so-called caring Dept refused to answer whether she had ever had a hip replacement op. She is not even a qualified doctor. Yet she is qualified to tell us what we may or may not need without asking any questions regarding the previous op, what the hospital has said, the layout of the house, etc.

By the way, Anth rang the Dept and was told the meeting would not take place before the op. I rang and was told the same. I threatened to go to the papers over the fact that Anth could be left for a day or more with any home help and care. I was then informed that ‘I had misunderstood and a meeting WOULD happen before her op’. I was assured it would happen and that GCC would no way leave us in this situation. I then asked for a senior member to ring me by the end of the following week. At 4.50pm on the Friday, having waited all week, I rang and got through to the Head of the Dept. She had no intention of ringing. She again failed to ring at 9am the following Monday. I had to ring at 4pm again. She had sent this letter saying no meeting was to take place before the op so didn’t see why she needed to ring. She accused me of getting upset and annoyed at her refusal to sanction a meeting before the op even though we know, and the surgeon knows what to expect.


Please draw your own conclusions and share.
Thank you for taking the time to read.
