I can see both sides of this argument as having been on both sides. Paid professionals tell us they are on leave, yes they need time to recharge. But what about us and our carers who cannot get this time! What is good for for one person should be good for all.
Carers and pwds live with it 24/7, no break. Respite is hard to come by; it should be a right.
Ironically, when a professional I used to think that I couldn’t do it 24/7, now I live with it all the time. Be careful what you think!
