“More care needs to be taken of the carers”, that’s the view of Mayo Sinn Fein senator Rose Conway Walsh.

She says that people caring for loved ones in their homes, save the state in excess of 10 billion euro a year, yet she says only a fraction of Home Carers actually qualify for the Carers Allowance.

Home Carers Ireland launched its pre budget submission to government this week asking for a range of changes to the Carers Allowance scheme to make life a little easier for carers.

Senator Conway Walsh told Midwest news that  she has asked the Minister with responsibility in this area to come into the Seanad to discuss the needs of Carers in more detail.
