I supplied night care to my previous caree for years as there was just no night care available. The last few years I was up all night and sleeping in the daytime then back to my caring duties. I never got any kind of respite/break. As I have said many times I don't even get carers allowance, supplyi...
Sorry to keep banging on, but I received no help caring when my caree was alive and all contact seized when he passed away, never saw anyone involved again. That is clearly unfair but it seems that's the way they do it. They say that when you go from this earth all your issues are resolved, you go t...
Mental health services is very restricted at the moment, very few are getting the support they need through the NHS. And there are long waiting lists. The GP's are restricted as it is not them that make the decisions, all they can do is give antidepressants and refer. Have you tried your local carer...
I attended several carers assessments quite a few years ago now never got any help or support package from the assessment. Despite looking after a wide mix of carees, Severe mental health, severe physical health- cerebral palsy, spina bifeda - incurable long term chronic illness/disabled from birth....

I have had a few dreams about my caree who passed away almost a year ago now. Very vivid dreams, going shopping, I used to take him shopping every week until he became too ill to leave the house. He was supposed to be moving into a new care place-supported housing, I can see him in his new place. I ...
My local hospital do a carers passport scheme, you can visit outside of visiting hours, you get reduced car parking and a discount in the hospital restaurant. But as far as I am aware there is no carers card scheme in my town/county North Yorkshire. I have seen shops offering student discount, I hav...
A couple of my carees are seeing private therapists, the NHS either just refuses or the waiting lists are so long and they need help now. One has PTSD, but was just told by the crisis team to seek private councelling, however the private councellor said they don't deal with PTSD, need specialist Pys...
Tried that there is a support group about 20 miles away but in a different county, West Yorkshire not North Yorkshire, so a different CCG Hospital etc. I have heard there is more help in West Yorkshire but you have to live there to access the help, Postcode lottery. My caree can barely get out of be...
My caree was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2001 by a rheumatologist, my caree was prescribed Pregablin (Lyrica) to help with nerve pain and Amytriptolene to help with sleeping. Since then very little has been done, not seen anyone in relation to Fibromyalgia. There has been no support given, my car...
