I just got back to London and opened my mail.
Now i've got some explaining to do and humble pie to eat
My solicitor is phoning my other half, not me, to arrange a meeting with her and me together for the court proceedings.
Fate is weird, you temp it and it will bite you back.
I mean I've only just said I've kept the worst of the accident from my other half and now suddenly she is going to find out the full extent of what actually happened on the night in question.
I have the report and recommendations and actions which have to be put in place to help me.
It actually hurts to read and no wonder they want my licence from me if the report is anything to go by.
Summary bits i'll put up but this is all ongoing and still in the process. I will not be putting up personal stuff, only bits to allow you all to read for yourselves the extent of the accident and the long awaited help I thought was not coming. And to be honest, some of it I am still unaware of.
4.1 MR(me)who was very fit and active prior to the injury.
4.2 Accommodation and environment is not meeting his current needs and he seriously puts himself at risk every day by climbing up and down stairs to use the bathroom and toilet. He would like to move from London and the noise and bustle of such a large city.
4.3 He is in constant and sometimes extreme pain in his leg and hand/arm and is not recieving near enough help so is relying on medication alone.
4.4 His priority goal is to mobilise, be free of pain and return to work along with his outdoor hobbies and pursuits.
4.5 Mr (stealthmode666) is suffering from depression since the injury and has repeated to several people he would be better off shutting himself away from everyone until he is better. This is serious and needs immediate response.
4.6 Ms .....(the other half) is in need of support in order to assist her in caring for her friend/companion to maintain the quality of what I see is a very close friendship and deep love for one another. She has been taking annual leave to take Mr (me) back to/from hospital and his house in London.
5.1 (to personal to type here)
5.2 MR (me) would also benefit from further rehabilitation support to assist him to regain independence and confidence with daily activities in/around the home and access to local community.
5.3 Case management
5.3.1 I recommend that a case manager is instructed to coordinate and take responsibility for:
• Resourcing and assessing all relevant medical, rehabilitation and support services for (me), to include the services of an occupational therapist, neuropsychologist and physiotherapist.
• To arrange suitable accommodation with downstairs or level access bathroom for Mr (me) close to his friend.
• Identifying, engaging and supervising an independent support worker for Mr (me).
• Monitoring and reviewing the effectiveness of all interventions.
• Providing ongoing support and advice for MR (me) and his friend’s family.
• Providing comprehensive risk assessments.
• Providing monthly progress reports on case management activity.
5.4.1 I recommend the services of an independent physiotherapist following the index injuries which have been left for so long unattended which seems wrong at this stage and I will need to further research why this has been allowed to happen in such an extreme case considering the amount of immense and sometimes excruciating pain MR (me) is suffering.
5.5 Occupational therapy
5.5.1 Occupational therapy input is required to assist MR (me) to regain independence and confidence in daily activities in/around the home and the community. I recommend the services of an independent occupational therapist to provide a detailed report with recommendations for treatment/intervention.
5.6 Support worker
5.6.1 I recommend that a support worker is recruited to assist MR (me) to carry out exercises as per therapist’s guidelines and recommendations. The support worker will also accompany him in taking prescribed medication only and at proper times as set out by the instructions of said medication.
This is only some bits, i'll put more up another time as this alone has taken me hours just to type out and copy and paste.
