I totally agree with Anna regarding the importance of health and social care being home based. In addition to web-based technology and the phone which Anna suggests, can SEMPA also suggest employing ones own care?

SEMPA believes if home based, and led care is to work effectively there is a need for a Contract of Trust between the disabled or elderly person as the employer, and their carer / Personal Assistant, as their employee. The best resource to enable such disabled and elderly people to take up their employer role is the lived experience of their peers.
