[quote="Anthony Westoby"]Chezan, I'm glad you can see my point of view and most Carers do the job for nothing or the govt. money of 28p per hour, did you know that?[quote]
Yes, I know about the pittance which carers get, I am one
, and have no idea how the government get away with it!!!
My husband and I look after three elderly relatives aged from 87 to 92, they all live in their own homes, so it's not just
personal care, shopping etc; but also property maintenance, and making sure that bills are paid etc; Not sure how you
arrive at 28p an hour though? I receive about £50 a week and that's for 35 hours, so about £1.40 an hour. My husband
doesn't receive any allowance. However, there's no way that we ever keep track of the hours, it's always a case of doing
what's needed, and spending however much time it takes!! We both have "proper" jobs and our own family too!!
