I welcome the Minister’s reply. She spoke about the 18.5 hours per week, and because of Covid we have moved to online training and people working from home. Can more facilities be put in place to assist carers? One of the problems carers have is that if the member of the family they are looking after passes away, they then find it difficult to get back into the employment system because things have totally changed. Can we do more to help people continue to provide care in the home and at the same time do some online training without them exceeding the 18.5 hours they devote to that experience?
