Benefits for carers


I will need to take time out from work to provide full-time care for my father. What is available for people in my situation?


There are several entitlements available to you. In order for you to qualify, the person you are caring for (your father) must be in need of full-time care and attention.

If you are working at present and will be taking time off to care, you may be eligible for carer's leave of up to 2 years. You must have worked for your employer for a continuous period of 12 months to qualify for this leave.

While you are on carer’s leave, you are entitled to get credited social insurance contributions to maintain your PRSI record.

You are entitled to annual leave and public holidays in respect of the first 13 weeks of carer’s leave. Your employer cannot dismiss

Q. If we all spoke the same language one day, it just might be a variety of a similect. Explain, please.

A. First, a few facts: Mandarin Chinese is spoken by the greatest number of people, over a billion; next is Spanish, and together the two languages are spoken in some 30 countries, says Hal Hodson in "New Scientist" magazine. Ranking third is English, found in at least 100 countries; it is the first language for some 335 million people, and the second language for another 555 million. Also, it dominates international relations, business and science.

Now to the question. As Anna Mauranen of the University of Helsinki explains, millions of second-language English speakers have created "similects" that incorporate elements of their native language with English: Chinese-English, Brazilian-English, Nigerian-English.

Languages like German and Estonian will remain the

Waterford Today weekly horoscopes

Wednesday 25th September - Tuesday 31st October

Aries 21st March-21st April

You like to stay busy Aries, but be aware that a shed-load of commitments and massive to-do list can be a great excuse to avoid unprocessed emotions and generally not dealing with ‘our stuff’. But unless we face these uncomfortable facets of life, we carry them around with us, weighing us down and bubbling to the surface when we least expect it. Whatever it is/was - loss, disappointment, betrayal - face your feelings around it.

Taurus 22nd April-21st May

You could be about to break all your own rules Taurus, especially where love and romance are concerned. It could be that after being fiercely independant you decide you want to hitch your wagon to someone else’s after all. Or maybe you break way from your usual dating ‘type’ and take

Which personality are you?

We all have different layers within us that make up our whole being of mind, body and spirit. When I test people in my health clinics, certain homeopathic remedies come up, and invariably as well as relating to any physical ailments, the remedies also correlate with the person’s emotional and mental characteristics. There are eight homeopathic remedies that I most commonly prescribe: Aconite, Arsenicum, Aurum, Lycopodium, Nat Mur, Nux Vomica, Pulsatilla and Sepia. As well as being helpful for certain physical conditions, each of these remedies relates to the

positive and negative emotional make-up and energy of the individual. When prescribing homeopathic remedies, I always take into account the person’s underlying homeopathic personality or personalities.

The Green Party in Cork, Limerick and Waterford has reiterated its alternative to the proposed Cork–Limerick motorway.

The party remade its call after the Minister for Finance, Paschal Donohoe, described the project as "the main missing link in our national road network" at a meeting of business leaders in Limerick during the week.

The government has pledged €5m for the planning and tendering phase of the project but has declined to say when construction of the road would begin. The final cost is expected to be in the region of €1 billion.

Speaking afterwards, Marc Ó Cathasaigh, chairperson of the Green Party in Waterford said:

"Upgrading the Cork–Limerick road to motorway is an idea guaranteed to be popular in some quarters. But like many popular ideas, it’s easy to get carried away without looking around at what other more cost effective options there might
