Caring for carer

I received a survey from West Sussex about their intention to change the way they pick their provider for care at home.

I hope that they take on board that I, as a carer, have to deal with these providers and, believe me, from my experience it is just as stressful as looking after someone.

The lack of communication and lack of respect for carers is disgraceful by some of these agencies. I know to my cost the stress that it has caused me.

They need to make sure that all their providers are made aware that carers are just as important a part to caring as the client.
