Respite funding has been halved

A WORCESTER husband who provides round-the-clock care for his disabled wife has been told their respite funding has been halved.

Jacqueline Greenaway, aged 40, spends four weeks of the year at Helen Ley House – a specialist care centre for people with multiple sclerosis in Leamington Spa.

Her stay there costs £1,000 a week and has previously been funded by Worcestershire County Council.

The rest of the time her husband Richard is her full-time carer, except for four hours a week when a carer arrives to allow him time away from the house.

However, the Warndon couple have now been told that their funding will be reduced to £513 a week, leaving them to make up the £2,000 difference.
