Carers and the hustings

Share information, support and advice on all aspects of caring.
Did anyone hear John Humphreys interviewing a Carer, Henrietta Spink?, on BBC Radio 4 9am to 9.30 am this morning ? If you missd it you can catch it on the repeat or 'listen again'. As this is the day before nominations close before the coming May elections, I am very pleased that the media has chosen to interview the case history of an articulate and intelligent woman, whose middle class London suburban life has been changed by Caring for two brain damaged children.
John Humphreys asked her why she didn't give up the struggle and put them into Local Authority Care. She replied by asking him if he would put his son into a care home in the same circumstances.
He admitted that he could not answer the question until such a thing happened.
Full marks to the BBC for highlighting a Carer issue at the start of the election hustings. Image
