Our client is almost blind and cannot continue to stay in his current accommodation. The food is not good, is making him feel weak and is worsening his sight. He is being accused of causing a mess in his room and in the communal areas, as he cannot see beyond a metre in front of him and is knocking things over in the hotel. He wishes to be housed in a non-hotel situation so he can have his own privacy and cook his own food. We have applied for a Care Act Assessment, but this application is for financial support for basic necessities.
