Home Help And Nursing Help

Below is the experience of one of our members. It is being shared in the hope that it may help someone else in this situation.

‘I have just been approved for 3hrs of home help and 20hrs of nursing help a week. My daughter is awaiting a liver transplant. When I applied she was under a yr old we were being admitted to hospital every 2-3 weeks for temperature and ending up in for 7-14 days. I was extremely tired at one visit in particular and I was advised to apply. I sleep in with my daughter 5 nights a week and my husband does the weekends. For a while we were only getting 3hrs sleep as she needs 2 bolus feeds. She a lot of moving so we are constantly moving her up the cot and rubbing her back for comfort.’
