The other day, there was an article in Metro about Julie, a disabled woman who starved to death after her carer chose to go visit her own mother instead of doing her job.
Julie, who needed help to eat, clothe and feed herself, died after three days without access to food, water or medication.
This is a situation I think most of us who are depending on carers for our needs to met are frightened of. We are painfully aware of the fact that the difference between good and bad carers is life or death… 😞
