Its long winded i am afraid.
As some are aware Beth is now an adult and will be leaving children's respite for adult respite. We finally found a respite home for her and were told the children's respite would transition her over the year. Beth is very nervous of new situations and takes a long time to trust. The children's respite told us we had two weeks and to book a week away for what would be our last chance of time away (adult service do not offer day respite during the week) so we booked to go to New York.
Today i phone them about something completely different to be told Beth needs to be in adult services by April or we would lose the bed. To start with this is way to soon as she has not even gone there for dinner let alone stay there within the next month. They said they would not be able to cover our holiday. The team leader from children's respite said she has managed to get them to agree to her going there for the week, which is great but i have since heard they are not sure they will have funding come April. I would not normally worry about this but a few young adults have left recently and they have not offered the bed to anyone else. Once Beth and another lad leave they will be down to 5 children so i can see it happening.
My dilemma is do i pay for the holiday in April when its due and hope for the best or cut my loses now and cancel just losing the deposit. I am guessing social services would not refund what we lose or the travel insurance. We can not go sooner due to dh being way to busy in work. Dh is no help what so ever
