Informal carers: where is the support?

Well, that’s another Carers Week over and done with for another year, the 21st of such weeks apparently. What do you mean you didn’t know that there was one? This is the one week of the year where ‘informal carers’ are allowed to be ‘out and proud’. This is the one week of the year where informal carers are allowed ‘me time’ to be pampered and made a fuss of before being put back into our boxes and told to get on with the job of caring, a job which encompasses the full range of caring and nursing functions, including administration of complex medication regimens and nasal-gastric and PEG feeding, among many others.
