Has any one thought of asking the carers what they think of the planned changes? Most want their relatives to come home as soon as possible, but there must be an understanding of the stress this can cause for carers.
You are expected to undertake quite complicated care and carry a heavy burden of responsibility while being given almost no helpful information, and sometimes even ignored by doctors and nurses who may visit daily (if you are lucky), but are not there, as the carer is, 24 hours a day. If resources are transferred from the acute to the community sector we must ensure enough of them go to helping carers.
