I just wanted to balance out my recent carer related posts. They aren’t all bad. Within my care team at present I have one crap carer, one ok carer and one really good carer. I also have a really wonderful ex-carer who unfortunately had to leave because the hours she was getting were completely incompatible with her life.
But I still see her. She popped round for coffee this week, bringing with her flowers and thoughts about going Christmas shopping and to a spa together. And the really good carer is amazing. We’re really in tune, we’ve talked a lot about my mental and physical health stuff and having her with me, regardless of what we’re doing, is really comfortable.
Getting the right carers can make a huge difference to your life and I know that without any care, even bad care, I would have no quality of life any more.
