Bank holidays are not good for family carers or the disabled

Five bank holidays in a 6 week period mean that many thousands of sick, elderly, disabled and their carers are being forced to manage alone without care help,
Even if the agencies or local authoroties can provide care workers on these days, many vulnerable people are unable to afford the extra charges for bank holiday working.
So for all the millions being lavished on the royal wedding, as usual it is the ones who can least afford it who suffer.

    I think this is so typical of what is wrong in the carers world–comments on bluebells and having a pet-but for carers and the sick and elderly or disabled being left to fend for themselves=NOTHING!!.

    This could be serious enough to cause deaths, does anybody care?? Do they hell!!
