hi,
was just wondering what the deal was on respite care for carers?
Are carers entitled to any and if so how much? how often? and how does it work?
After doing 24/7 for 12 months i'd really at least like a day off but dont know how i go about it.
Do i just use my attendant care allowance to pay for the time out i need or are there other procedures?

An interesting site, talks about prolotherapy but has a very interesting page on referred pain from back pain etc
Hackett Referral Patterns are named for George S. Hackett, M.D., who not only introduced the term Prolotherapy in 1955 in the first edition of his book Ligament and Tendon Relaxation Treated by Prolotherapy, but also discovered, after years of treating patients, that injury to a ligament in one part of the body can send, or refer, pain to another part of the body. When a weakened ligament or tendon is stretched, the sensory nerves become irritated, causing local and referred pain throughout the body. These patterns were outlined in Hackett's observations, which he mapped after giving 20,000 ligamentous injections in diagnosing and treating ligament and tendon relaxation in 1,816 patients over a 20-year period, and which are now referred to as Hackett Referral Patterns. They are shown in the figures on this page.
