Unpaid Carers

24 Nov Unpaid Carers

Please read the comments on this newspaper article and feel your heart sink as it reveals the backward and old fashioned view of who carers are and what they actually do!

To be clear –

  • not all carers look after the elderly and under fives
  • we all work for free even if we get Carers Allowance
  • it’s not about wanting to be paid it’s needing to be paid – just look at how much the private sector charges for care and you’ll see why
  • don’t make us feel guilty or bad about asking for help, financial or otherwise – walk in our shoes and then you can comment

Rant over!
