my carers.

so I thought it was about time that I should dedicate a blog posting to my wonderful carers. If anybody following my blog is looking for care workers maybe for a family member I would strongly advise you to check out this company as they are absolutely fantastic. :)

My PA is Tony he is fantastic. I have been friends with him for over 10 years now. He has given up his life at the moment to care for me. He did this to get me out of the care home and because I needed it. I really appreciate everything he does for me. We irritate each other sometimes but in all we get on quite well. He is a guitarist and a motorcyclist so he has some good hobbies to do. He is also a Christian. His faith is important to him and is part of who he is.

My carers who assist me with my personal care are Dawn and Cathy. They are amazing. They are both absolutely brilliant at their jobs. They make me feel as if I am normal and not disabled. They assist with my personal care and toileting which was embarrassing for me at first but now I am used to it and they have helped me overcome my embarrassment. I am now well cared for and I no longer feel disgusting and dirty like I did when I was in the nursing home.

All three of my carers are excellent. They all work so hard and they make me feel good about myself. I often feel as if I am a burden and they make me feel as if I am not. They cheer me up when I am down and they are helping me to learn to cope with my condition. I really appreciate all the work they do for me and I hope they realise that I am so grateful for them. I wish there was something that I could do to repay them but unfortunately there isn't. All I can do is try my best to get better for them as well as myself. I love all three of my carers to bits and I'm so happy that they are my carers. :)
