Severe ME Understanding & Remembrance Day : This day aims to bring public attention to the illness for the sake of all those presently suffering from Severe Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and to remember all those who have died from ME.
A day to honour the strength of spirit of all those who have endured and continue to endure decades of suffering and profound physical dysfunction and yet receive little, or no recognition or help, but rather continue to experience gross misrepresentation and misinterpretation of their illness and profound disability.
To mark Severe M.E. Day 2015 we are focusing on raising awareness of the home care needs of people with severe M.E.
We have taken this decision in view of the truly dreadful service responses that members increasingly report encountering from social services, when it comes to assessing their home care needs and the type of service required.
The items on the right can be sent to head of social work directors and/or other care managers.
