I'm speaking up, making this public because this shit seriously needs to be sorted out!!! This poor woman is an incomplete paraplegic and has a brain injury, she has not had care supports come to her home in 2 months, despite her having a funding package.
Due to this, she has had to create a make shift bed on her (what it looks to be) tiled floor, which she also has to crawl on to be able to do anything!
Because this woman is also transgender, her previous carers were uncomfortable dressing her in women's clothing.
Donna is her name, she's anxious, and because of that, these carers go back to their boss and report that this woman is crazy! Are you serious?!
Before all of this, Donna was being provided carers who had no experience or training on how to use a hoist, which she needs to get in and out of bed and into her motorised wheelchair, which she would also use to get out into the community.
Conveniently, The Department of Family and Community Services said they couldn't comment specifically on an individual client.
Not only is Donna being denied access of using her own home, but they are denying her access of getting out into the community, and the right to proper hygiene.
They have completely stripped her of her independence and are discriminating against her sexuality.
Donna is already an anxious lady, I can't imagine what this situation is doing to her mental health now!
A disabled person has been forced to crawl around on their floor to do the common things a human being does... Donna is being treated like filth, she said that she tosses and turns in bed feeling like a worm that's been trod on.
You will see that in The Border Mail photo, Donna is all dressed, that's because she was up since 4:30 this morning trying to get ready.
People! Ask yourself, what is wrong with this?
We need more people to speak up, we need this to improve!
