If I read your posts correctly, it seems that you are living in the UK.
Is that correct?
If it is, you are entitled to remind your carers that CeSky (or whatever they call themselves now) have an established best practise for supported independent living.
You are entitled to point out to your carers that this provides for care on the social, not the medical, model.
This, in a nutshell, means that their job is to enable, not to control, your life choices and activities.
In short, you make the choices, and they help to make them happen. If this is not the case, insist that they refer to the regulations, which are specific.
