LETTER: Carer concern

N Weller you are a real carer.    My letter was about people who receive Carers Payment and Allowances who rort the system.    They get these payments so they don't have to go onto the Unemployment Benefits and look for work.   The person they are supposed to be caring for still bath, cook, do housework and dress themselves as well as wash their own clothes and do their own shopping and take themselves to the doctors.    When you receive these payments you have to notify Centrelink if the person you care for leaves your care or more than 24hrs as this is Centrelink's Rules and Policy.    What a pity there aren't more people around like N Weller, your blood is worth bottling.    I cared for my mother for over 10 years and she was in a Wheel Chair. It was a tough job mate but I got there.   A ALVAREZ   Bundaberg   N Weller you are a real carer.    My letter was about people who receive Carers Payment and Allowances who rort the system.    They get these payments so they don't have to go onto the Unemployment Benefits and look for work.   The person they are supposed to be caring for still bath, cook, do housework and dress themselves as well as wash their own clothes and do their own shopping and take themselves to the doctors.    When you receive these payments you have to notify Centrelink if the person you care for leaves your care or more than 24hrs as this is Centrelink's Rules and Policy.    What a pity there aren't more people around like N Weller, your blood is worth bottling.    I cared for my mother for over 10 years and she was in a Wheel Chair.
