Hillary Whitmore started this petition to liverpool council

Shaun Whitmore was 19 when he went on holiday in June 2005 to party resort San Antonio where he plunged 100ft from a fourth floor apartment, catastrophically landing on his head.


It left him using a wheelchair for the rest of his life, unable to talk and carry out basic daily tasks like going to the toilet, washing and eating.

Now 33, shaun is looked after by a team of carers

That includes a night-time carer who sleeps at the bungalow on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, each week.

struggling to cope, i was recently informed my high-cost package - funded by Liverpool Council - was coming to an end within days.

This means shaun being taken into emergency care and ending the arrangement of the last 15 years of him being looked after by me.

I've been caring for him for 15 years, but I can't do it on my own.
I've broken my back, I have a heart condition and I've severe arthritis.

Shaun is 5ft 11in and a big lad, and to do it on my own, as a woman, is too much.
I just want him at home for Christmas
