A young carer

Special mention iconBefore the sun is set
He is awoken by the alarm
He turns off the alarm
Walks to his mother’s bedroom
To give her the medication
Everything is in autopilot
Checks she’s ok
Before changing the hour of the clock
To seven o’ clock
In time
To make breakfast, to wash, to administer medication
To make sandwiches, to leave a reminder to order prescriptions
To leave the door unlocked for the District Nurse to attend
To mum
Before setting off to school
To learn
