Hi All, I have just been to see out local member of parlament but he was one holiday and got two representations. I tried to get respite as i have to go away for a week. It all fell through nursing homes won't take my husband due to him being too young therefore they would need more staff as he can walk! All nursing homes are for elderly and don't cater for younger people. I got offered 2 places after that one is where i wouldn't put an animal the other is hospital and he doesn't need hospital. As i have to go my Dad is taking him as there is no where for him to go and he is 78. My Dad is also in agreement about not sending him to the only places available. and also been told by a lot they are glad he is not going to these places The early onset group here have been campaining for 10years to get better respite places for younger people to go but get no where. I have been told that carers here don't take respite due to the conditions. My husband got santioned on my first respite why because he was frighened he said to our support worker they are all mad in here. He still has awareness. The two representers were shocked and are passing it on to the member of parlament To hear from him next week. I aim to change things for young people with Dementia in my area. Its bad that i have to do this and care as well. What happened to the take good care of yourselve government carers advice?
