Over the last 12 months I have been admitted to Warrington General Hospital 4 times. The last was in November 08 when after 1 week in hospital I was sent to a Nursing Home for a further 2 weeks.
Since leaving the Nursing home I have spoken with my social worker, on a number of occasions. A few days ago I asked him what support was available to me if I felt I should need it. He said I could only get support if I joined a local organisation such as the pensioners support group and that these groups would provide help. He said there was nothing that social services could do.
As a lady of 74 I feel that I have been abandoned. I would like to have someone in social services who I could talk to and who would be there for me.
