Going through a period of change in terms of my wife's care. Seems to be a constant flow of professionals from health and social care. The one constant output from all parties is another task for me to do. I only refused one and that was would I do the colonic washout. Looking after Ros is really no...
Today 3 unpaid Carers are attending the Hertfordshire Adult Care Panel. The Panel are deciding on whether to increase care charges by £6m and reduce care spending by £11m for 2018/19. There are further £30m in cuts to cone before 2021. We are going there to see how the Councillors are going justify ...
To all my fellow Carers and Volunteers, I wish you all a Happy New Year. This is a year when we must make our voices heard. So good luck with any campaigning and I hope we are feel that by the end of 2018, we will feel that the powers really improve support and the lives of Carers.
As a Carers UK volunteer, and with other Carers, we are working with Jodie Deards Carers Lead and other healthcare professionals on improving support for Carers. We are dealing with the issues that can make the engagement with the hospital a challenge. Carer Awareness, Carer involvement, helping peo...
Adult Care in Hertfordshire needs to find £17.5m for year 2018/19 rising to £40m by 2021. Problem is caused by the on going reduction in the Revenue Support Grant which started in 2010.

What they don't tell you, is that since 2010, the Government has been reducing the Revenue Support Grant with a view to eliminating it in 2021. This means that HCC has to find £89m of cuts betw...
3 years ago we were offered the chance to move to a bungalow (social housing) within a system called flexi care. It is a great scheme you are supported by on site carer workers 7 x 24. I do most of the day to day tasks but I needed help with the lifting and personal care for my wife. I had damaged m...
I have recently joined the growing number of Carers trying to care for 2 people. For 20 years I have cared for my Wife who has progressive MS. The last 10 years it has had to be full time. Since Christmas my Mum (86) has needed a lot more support. Mum lives 32 miles away. I spent years understanding...
I have asked myself this Christmas is there a point at which my role as a Carer is becoming counter productive. My role seems to have diminished to just the domestic tasks. Ros refuses to go out except to her day centre. They have installed a hospital bed which means I sleep on the sofa in the loung...
