To be fair BBC radio has had loads about it on all week. We generally have radio 2 on (as my wife seems to like it) and it's been all over the station like a rash. I don't know about other stations local or national but the coverage on radio 2 has been massive, not just people with AZ but sometimes quite young children careering for parent and siblings it's been a real eye opener. I've googled it and according to the RAJAR figures radio 2 has 15 million listeners 50% more than its nearest rival (radio 4) no doubt it's been covered by other stations too and with the ads on TV I've seen the awareness message loads of times in the past week.Carers Week is not very well advertised. Unless you are a carer, you probably don't know about it.
The government is perfectly aware of the "time bomb" they're also aware that this (or any other government, no politics intended) can't find the money available to deal with the whole cost of care for the aged and infirmed.One could almost think the truth is never shown as the public might wake up to a massive care time bomb that is about to happen.
Sorry I was being slightly tongue in cheek there.The government is perfectly aware of the "time bomb" they're also aware that this (or any other government, no politics intended) can't find the money available to deal with the whole cost of care for the aged and infirmed.
My parents (and their siblings) looked after my grandparents for years at no cost to the state, agreed it wasn't for as long as it might be now but time has moved on.
I can only say to the OP as I did earlier I got a bit of a reaction, but that maybe a coincidence, time will tell.
