Booked Mexico holiday last October, my wife diagnosed with PSP in May 2014. We though we shall continue with the Holiday. My wife also recovering from throat cancer and has breast cancer currently being treated with Hormone tablets. First problem was meal on plane - not as soft as we asked, my wife was violently ill throughout the 9hr flight. She is also wheelchair bound now due to PSP and falls etc. 2nd problem, she fell while being supported by my holding on to a large parasol - the base damaged my leg leg and as I an a diabetic I suffer from leg ulcers, and hey presto I get one due to the trauma. 3rd problem - due to heat and local food, she contracted Gastro Enteritis - which resulted in a GBP 1300 bill in a local private hospital. I am drained, I am younger than my wife by 8 years and still have to work while being her main carer. To be honest I believe PSP was there for last 3 or more years years but the Cancer masked it. I have now read PSP advice never to book a holiday too early due to unforeseen and uncertain health of the PSP sufferer. We dare not travel abroad again - my wifes health has dropped a level again as she now has a constant gurgling cough. Can anyone advise of any places local to Liverpool that accept people with PSP for Holidays and can support their needs ? I know I also need a respite break for myself anyway.....
