This dont sound so nice and comfy. But I can understand that some times have to wait because the home care services in many cases are so overstretched. But I hope that the investigation will be into something positive so that this does not have to happen again. I can imagine that the disabled were not so very happy about this situation. Can not be so on nice to have to wait so long for a diaper change if you really need won right now.
