Here, Peter shares some of his story about caring for his young adult son who has Profound Mental and Physical Disabilities.
He is now 20 years old with profound mental and physical disabilities. He needs 24/7 care, 2:1 during the day with a sleeping shift over night
Actually very little, but only because we have fought to get a Personal Health Budget (PHB) which has transformed the lives of the whole family. It is hard to manage and administer – but worth it.
As above, we now have time breaks. I am now a PhD student looking into PHBs
PHBs are great, but there is no support for you run them. This support is what is needed.
At Imagineer, we work alongside unpaid family carers in many different ways; but one of the key ways that we can assist is by providing Support Brokerage.
If you are interested in receiving assistance from one of our Support Brokers, please contact us: email@example.com to request a call-back for an informal discussion, or a referral form.
