I can tell you that Human Rights are not absolute.
Your only one here is a right to a private and family life.
This is not an absolute right, it is qualified. This means it can be limited by law.
Clearly here the difficulty you have is expecting the Council to provide and fund 24 hour care 7 days a week.
There is clearly a cost of doing this which is going to be many thousands of pounds every week.
You are expecting the Council to spend thousands of pounds a week when there are government cuts and their budgets are very tight
I do not think realistically you can get them to do this.
Human rights have to be competed and balanced not only with your rights but those of others.
If the Council spent money on this then it may be they can not offer a number of other people services.
So there are competing interests for time and money
The law allows Councils to refuse to provide this service so you can not make them
However you can ask for it and if they refuse you can complain to the Local Government Ombudsman
They regulate Councils and can consider any complaint you have
They offer a free service and their website is: www.lgo.org.uk
If the Council refuse to offer the service you can also consider a Judicial Review
This is where a High Court Judge considers your complaint and see whether the Council has acted reasonably.
Yes if a needs assessment suggests this is necessary.
The Judge can agree with the decision or remit it back for further consideration.
You may or may not get legal aid for this.
But these are your options.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thank you for your help I do not reply any clarification at this time
