VACANCY: Unpaid Carer. 365 days a year. 24/7 on call.

Written for my Dad. By Emma Terranova Davis, Co-Director and Founder of CFMB not for profit Ltd.

I have brand new vacancy… I really need to fill. I would love to get more care in… but I can’t afford the bill.

Social services say I have too much. I’m a little bit confused. If I use my savings, sell my house, and all that can be used…

What happens when it’s over? How will I survive? What was the point in working hard for our entire lives?

I’m only early 60s. This is burdening my health. Is the only way through this mess if you have a lot of wealth?

Anyway it’s all ok, I can apply for CHC… It’s NHS Funded care, not means tested luckily… You have to pass as complex to meet the ‘eligibility’. But that won’t be a problem, with Huntington’s it’s easy to see.

The ‘armageddon of diseases. Notoriously vile. Not many families that fall out over it, ever reconcile.

It rips through generations A 50/50 chance You’ll be accused of being drunk thanks to the wobbly stance…

It’s cognitive impairment. Personality change too. Not to mention the emotional changes you will be put through…

Anyway, that’s not point I’ve got sidetracked easily I need a new unpaid carer. A-S-A-P

I’ve come to hit a brick wall, CHC has been declined. They say I can appeal but the time is hard to find.

I urgently need to fill my space 3-60-5 days a year.

No holiday, no break. It’s 24/7 on call here….

  1. I want to show appreciation to this writer just for rescuing me from such a instance. Because of researching through the world wide web and seeing suggestions that were not pleasant, I was thinking my entire life was well over. Being alive without the solutions to the difficulties you have fixed by means of your good write-up is a serious case, and ones that could have in a negative way affected my entire career if I hadn’t noticed the website. Your own training and kindness in dealing with almost everything was tremendous. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a solution like this. I can now look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for this high quality and effective guide. I will not think twice to endorse your web blog to anybody who needs counselling about this matter.
