[D+896] care in the Emergency

Bureaucracy stifles humanity (update 2011)

Our severely disabled adults, former foster daughter, Katja (almost 23 basal”, coma-like) came of age, “21 years ago from a Vienna children's home in our family. Six years ago, Katja, who was now 16 years old, was unable to cope with the economic burden. More and more of the care work required for both our use, so that employment became more and more impossible. We were indirectly forced to a care home Katie's.

There she was thrown, however, after only seven weeks of placement in the “best disabled facility” in lower Austria (quote social authority) from the “nursing home”- the operator of this facility as “one of the most modern and best – equipped offerings for the severely multi – handicapped people in lower Austria” describes, in consultation with the Supervisory authority (abuse of authority), without notice to you and illegally to get out, after we, as professionals, Care, care, Hygiene and structural deficiencies revealed and the compliance with legal provisions and agreements demanded.

Charlotte is Dipl. Children's nurse with on-going training in home nursing, Gerhard has as a Federal army and a paramedic, a nursing assistant training. We are both the most most qualified nurses for Katja with over 21 years of experience.

Since the support crash from 4.4.2005 we are fighting a relentless war, far beyond the border, everything Unbearable, against the social authorities in the countries of lower Austria and Vienna, in the two procedures up to the highest courts. It is a fair and reasonable support for the vital, highly professional and a lot better Round-the-clock care at home, the financing of the social bureaucracy failed so far.

For disabled segregation facilities a multiple thereof has been paid, our Katja flew immediately out (officially part weigh-in was this, so far, as far as possible welded). For the “life - task” of a lot of better rehabilitation care and support at HOME means a life - task! Only a fraction of the cost in the special world of “home” will be replaced for decent life home.

The Austrian care system promotes precarious to illegal and part of a dangerous care in special institutions for about three to seven times as high as the perfectly legal care in the home by family caregivers.

Family caregivers lose over the years of any kind of social Status, and as a Affected on the part of excluded social life far below the poverty line. There are many affected families.

We personally stand by for about five years, about to lose our home and are on all levels with his back to the wall.

We ask ourselves two things:
What have we done to deserve this and what have we done wrong?
