Carers: Motion [Private Members] (26 Jun 2019)

Catherine Byrne: I would like to start by expressing the admiration that, l am sure, all Members of this House have for family carers. Every day, tens of thousands of people provide care for parents, children, partners, family members and others. They come from various different walks of life and began their caring responsibilities at different stages of their lives. It is only right that we recognise the...

Carers: Motion [Private Members] (26 Jun 2019)

Michael Fitzmaurice: I welcome the opportunity to speak to the motion, which I support. Care work is a vocation. Carers put in hours and hours to help their loved ones and close relatives, be they young children, middle aged or elderly. Sometimes, in desperate situations, carers are looking for respite help and it is not out there. Take, for example, a child with autism whose parent is his or her carer. That...

Carers: Motion [Private Members] (26 Jun 2019)

Alan Kelly: I thank all the speakers who have spoken to this important motion, brought forward by my colleague, Deputy Penrose, the Labour Party spokesperson. He has a track record in this area. Everyone in this House can see the passion he has shown about this issue. I assure everyone in the House that Deputy Penrose has spoken up for carers for decades and, indeed, it is a topic to which he...

Carers: Motion [Private Members] (26 Jun 2019)

Jan O'Sullivan: I welcome the people to the Visitors Gallery, many of whom are family carers. I thank Members of other parties who have expressed support for this motion, which I believe will be passed by the Dáil tomorrow afternoon; I certainly hope so. We tabled the motion to get action. As did Deputy Penrose, who spoke so passionately about the cases he knows, I attended a regional meeting in...

Carers: Motion [Private Members] (26 Jun 2019)

Peter Burke: I acknowledge this important motion and the contribution that family carers make throughout the State in caring for their loved ones. Recently, I attended a Family Carers Ireland roadshow, which set out the incredible work of carers, day by day, week by week. When one considers the changing demographics we face, ones sees that as a Government, we have to set out a roadmap of how we are...

Carers: Motion [Private Members] (26 Jun 2019)

Danny Healy-Rae: I welcome the opportunity to speak to this important motion. People cannot organise the timing of when they get sick. It often happens that an elderly mother, father, brother or sister gets sick and has to go to hospital. Eventually they cannot stay in the hospital any longer and are faced with the choice of going into a home or going home. Many people from different walks of life do not...

Carers: Motion [Private Members] (26 Jun 2019)

Mattie McGrath: I welcome the opportunity to speak to the motion. This is an issue that should generate widespread cross-party support. The Central Statistics Office has found that 10% of the population are providing care to someone with a chronic condition or an infirmity due to old age for an average of nearly 45 hours per week. An estimated 355,000 people in Ireland are carers, many of them caring...

Carers: Motion [Private Members] (26 Jun 2019)

Seán Sherlock: I support the motion. I want to focus on one aspect of the issue relating to the submission made by Family Carers Ireland, FCI, in respect of the transport and mobility scheme. The mobility allowance and motorised transport grant was withdrawn in 2013. I quote from a very sensible submission it made, which states:The failure to replace the Mobility Allowance and Motorised Transport...

Carers: Motion [Private Members] (26 Jun 2019)

Denis Naughten: More than 68,000 carers in Ireland suffer from depression. That is enough to fill every seat in Croke Park. A large proportion of those carers suffer depression as a result of never getting a break. Every human being needs a break. Even a short break allows us to recharge. This is even more important if one is providing care seven days a week, 24 hours a day. As we know, 6,000 older...

Carers: Motion [Private Members] (26 Jun 2019)

Joan Collins: I welcome Family Carers Ireland to the Visitors Gallery. I was at its briefing today. I fully support its pre-budget submission, "A Decade Lost". Its very reasonable demands are outlined in this motion and in the Sinn Féin amendment. I welcome the opportunity to speak on this Private Member's motion but I also have to put on record my astonishment at the hypocrisy of the Labour Party...
