Caring whist working from home.

Hi

Anyone like to share their experiences of coping with caring whilst working at home. I work full time and my husband has three social care visits per day but due to being on the high risk register I was advised by his consultant to minimise all exposure to others whilst shielding. I cancelled his visits and am currently juggling both which is extremly difficult. My employers were symathetic to begin with byt have now said that if I cannot cope I must take unpaid leave or reduce my hours. My only option therefore is to re-instate his care package as I am unable to afford to lose any income.

I think you need to take further advice. Your employer has a duty to you as a carer.

Do not be pressured in to making a rash quick decision. Protect your husband and yourself.
