MS sufferer fights attempts to put her in nursing home


A 42-year-old MS sufferer has said she is shocked at attempts by her health trust to put her into a nursing home.

Elaine Kennedy needs a significant amount of care in her home, but the agency that provides it says they can no longer do it.

Until last week the Bluebird Care agency - based in Coleraine - supplied carers four times a day.

When Elaine tried to get the time they spent with her increased they cancelled altogether.
