My post yesterday on Unison’s Ethical Care Charter has got me thinking. Where is the Charter for Care Partners? Which is the best organisation to support us in our struggles for adequate support to prevent Burnout?
Maureen has been awake since 1 am this morning; despite my best efforts to persuade her to go back to sleep: it’s time to seek further help on this front. It’s fortunate I’m meeting Gary, our social worker, this morning as getting more rest by securing regular respite will be an important feature of our discussions. Attending meditation sessions like I did yesterday are helpful but they can’t compensate for the sleep disturbance that is feature of my life at the moment.
