I am new to the site. I am in my mid twenties and used to be a young carer for my mother who is at an advanced stage of MS. She is 50 years old and receives pretty much round-the-clock care in her home however because the Independent Living Fund is coming to an end, we have hit quite a dilemma where it is cutting 31 hours of her care, and her main carer who has been with us for 8 years is having to leave. My brother lives at home with my mother, I don’t live at home, however we are all concerned what the future holds with such drastic changes to her care. We are in contact with a local Advocacy to get as much advice and support as possible. I think our main issue is if she ends up “in care”, which would be damaging, mentally and physically for her, and for us.
Is anyone else on here going to be affected by the IFL being cut?
