Comment on: If the cap fits
I too am a carer. Not for an elderly person in my family. I am the carer of three of my grandsons as their parents are unable to care for them. I am their legal guardian...well I am for the eldest two. At present I am having a fight with Legal Aid to have representation!! I WAS working when the boys came to me but, as someone in the older part of society I found I was unable to carry on doing so. It was making me both physicallay and emotionally ill. I was quite literally wearing away.
I am, of course, saving this marvellous government a total of at least £240,000.00 per year. This is the cost if my grandchildren were to go into care. Over my dead body is the phrase that comes to mind.
However. I am now to be penalised for actually saving the country money. How very thoughtless and unthinking of me.
It has been suggested by a 12 year old who worked in the local Job Centre (and thats a laugh too - jobs - my arse - as a certain couch potato says!) that I go back to work and pay someone to look after these traumatised and frightened little boys!!!!! I fail to see how this would help them!!
I am very open to your comments people.
