The Carer: ‘I dread the budget every year – we can’t take any more cutbacks’

Since the ‘Age of Austerity’ began, society’s most vulnerable have been hit hardest.

Today, Independent.ie spoke to mum-of-one Heather Hogan.

Heather is mother of teenager David (16).

Shortly after his birth, David was diagnosed with cerebral palsy.

At the age of two, he was diagnosed with autism. In recent years, he has lost the sight in his left eye, with his remaining sight fading.

David needs care around the clock.

June Monaghan bathed her lad Jonjo Murphy at a Premier Inn for seven months because social services refused to adapt her home.

But after we intervened this month, Glasgow City Council has pledged to fit a special shower unit in 17-year-old Jonjo’s room.

And June, 49, will get massage therapy for back pain caused by lifting her son, who has cerebral palsy.

The relieved ex-pub landlady — who also cares for brain-damaged hubby Robert, 51, at their home in the city’s Robroyston — said yesterday: “I’m very grateful to The Scottish Sun. Things are starting to happen.”
