Those families who are employing a carer to take care of thier disabled relative or elderly relatives should get full support (full refund of salary, tax and NI) re the carers being employed by them. We have been paying for all this for the last 12 years....this means we have not utilised the Govt facilities for the last 12 years...saved the Govt thousands of euros...the people who opt for this option and keep thier relatives at home should get full refund and not part refunds....and if possible back dated.
