Maybe of interest.
It certainly was, Taffy
and thanks for posting the link.
I also found that after Parky has done his spot, there is a link which appears to another interesting clip about 'Social Care', called something like Paul's Story.
Sorry folks, I don't know how to bring the link to TP myself, we'll have to go the long way round unless one of our resident Techno-wizzes does it!
Woo-Hoooo! I've done it (I think)
Paul's Story was sad in itself but what a realistic gentleman. I doubt that he will be holding his breath waiting for any reforms.
Insight, into what lays ahead for us. Regards Taffy.
Thanks Taffy and Lynne
Confess I saw the news about my beloved 'Parky' and didn't post the link publicly ..... let's hope he can really champion the cause .... (apprecaite this is not solely dementia care).
I loved Paul's astuteness too .... if he could work out he paid £13 per hour for a carer how come Carer's Allowance is less than £50 per week for a minimum of 35 hours care? Might have to take my socks off and work that one out on my toes!!!!!
Or maybe I should aim to be the next Chancellor of the Exchequor ... coz someone somewhere has got their sums wrong!!!!
Dignity is paramount - but that should be for carers too and recognise their worth ....
Love, Karen, x
