We Care and We Vote

Today I read an article by a woman who is her daughter's sole carer....for life.  I truly hope that I never reach the depths of despair that this lady has reached.  Please read this.....this is the life of the Carer.  There are tens of thousands of us living this harsh reality of Australia's 3rd world disability system.

We Care......And We Vote!!

Those that lead us should be ashamed that any mother should be reduced to feeling what this lady feels.
I worked with many mothers in the same situation and they are alone, no support, and no care. I loved the challenge of beating the system to help where I could, but it should not be this way, we spend millions on surveys, voting etc and nothing to assist families in this situation. The normal story line is "she already gets too much, or she is trouble because she dares to ask for help. I have said it before and I will say it again "shame on our government."
