LSS-the commission's proposals a major blow against the disabled

Large parts of the commission's content leaked earlier in the fall, and Maria Persdotter have as president for the RBU taken part of the content.

to several of the proposals, including as regards the right to personal assistance, which, according to the authors of the report to be changed in the future.

the Investigation suggests that children under the age of 16 shall no longer be entitled to personal assistance. Instead, the children be able to get any other bet, unclear which, and it becomes the responsibility of the municipality where the children live, " says Maria Persdotter.

opens the ”290 different interpretations” of what the bet should be, and that it leads to legal uncertainty for the children. Municipalities will also keep the hard in the money, out of concern for his own budget, which can also lead to unfair assessments.

"Likely so, they put themselves on a very low level," says Maria Persdotter.

it gets worse, she says, because the commission of inquiry proposes a very substantial cut in the number of hours of personal assistance as one can get.

– in Addition to assistance for basic needs, to eat, to go to the bathroom and take a shower, you should only get 15 hours a week. Everything else you need to do, clean, cook, shop, do errands, to be managed at the time.

8 hours a day on such activities.

this means that disabled people who live good lives, lives in own apartment and has a job and a salary, will not be able to continue to live so. Everything works thanks to the personal assistance.

" Take my daughter as an example. Today she has 130 hours of assistance per week. With the new system, she would get 45. It is totally devastating, it's so bad that I almost cannot find the words.

Maria Persdotter fear that many would be forced from their homes, if the proposals were implemented.

– Where will they go? You're talking about group homes, it is a development that we haven't seen since the 1950s, when we had large institutions.

one of the premises for investigation – that the costs of the LSS would splint – is incorrect.

– It is a tendentious way to describe it. Costs have risen, absolutely, and it is possible to explain. But if you have decided that including people with disabilities shall have the right to live good life, to be independent and involved in the community, then you have to be prepared that it may cost money.

, intressepolitisk manager at Funktionsrätt Sweden, saws the investigation. He believes that when the directives were given, for a couple of years ago, there were assumptions about the existence of a large fraud in the assistansersättningen, which then proved not to sue. It did that the directives were unilateral. The insurance office has since applied the legislation in a more restrictive manner, which has led to many already lost their personal assistance.

that there is a political support to push through the further deterioration of the investigation, suggest.

" What troubles most of the day, which also applies to the political parties, is that people have become with their support. Children and adults do not receive the support they need and live in desperate situations. Where is my assessment that the political focus is on how to ensure the aid is, what should people get for support when it will be of assistance, " he says.

is that parliament just before christmas, in a broad political consensus set behind to ventilatory support and tube feeding must be counted as a basic need, something that Insurance does not apply in the day, and investigation also goes against.

" But we can't shout hello and blow the danger is over, there is an investigation that will be discussed politically and sometimes, it is a fact that some of the proposals picked up eventually.

Mikael Klein do think, however, that it, in its entirety, belongs in the trash.
