This care and attention must be provided to allow the child to deal with the activities of daily living. The child must be likely to require this level of care and attention for at least 12 months.  This is dealt with by the Department of Social Protection

Carers Leave
The Carer's Leave Act 2001 allows employees in Ireland to leave their employment temporarily to provide full-time care for someone in need of full-time care and attention. Since 24 March 2006 the minimum period of leave is 13 weeks and the maximum period is 104 weeks (was 65 weeks).
Carer's leave from employment is unpaid but the Carer’s Leave Act ensures that those who propose to avail of carer's leave will have their jobs kept open for them for the duration of the leave. You may be eligible for Carer's Benefit if you have enough PRSI contributions. If you do not qualify for Carer's Benefit you may qualify for Carer's Allowance which is a means-tested payment. You can take carer's leave even if you do not qualify for either of these payments.

The Respite Care Grant is an annual payment made to carers by the Department of Social Protection. Carers can use the grant in whatever way they wish. You can use the grant to pay for respite care if you wish, but you do not have to do so..

Speech and Language Tips

Play a game such as 'Simon Says', taking turns to follow and give instructions. This is a way of promoting both listening and expressive language (at an appropriate level) while having some fun with action.

Chairperson Message of The Month

For my second and last message to you all, if you have been on holidays I hope you had a good time and enjoyed yourselves and if you are still looking forward to sometime off, have a good time and stay safe.

I would like to welcome Claire Walsh, on board, as a temporary replacement for Breeda.

The next big event we have to look forward to is the Tour de Munster BBQ on Thursday August 6. You will have received your invitation by this stage, via e-mail and post. Please make a big effort to come along and meet all the cyclists who are doing this cycle for all our members in Munster. Claire needs to know how many people we will be catering for, so please let her know as soon as possible if you are going attend.  Looking forward to having a big turn out for the occasion and hopefully I'll see you there
