I want to congratulate my carers in the way I am being cared for, ‘My little family,’ especially when I am ill. Hence the importance of carers knowing everything about the client as a whole. I am blessed as someone with several ailments, knowing every sign and symptoms is imperative e.g. when my Hickman Line is infected I do not present as someone who has an infection, I present differently. Thanks to [Nurse Case Manager], the carers have been taught the difference. Without being dramatic this knowledge saved me on many occasions. On my last admission I was extremely ill but my carers obtained swift medical care. This was knowing me as a whole and the importance of knowing the differences between infections. HFH, thank you for the carers I have and the teaching
