Hi, I’m Trudy and am new to this forum. I’ve been a full-time carer for my big sister since May this year. She has multiple health problems but is feeling better in her-self since I started getting help and support from carers charities.

Welcome to the forum, Trudy.

Your sister is lucky to have you.

Take a look around the forum and join in if you have advice to give or an opinion to share or go the Members and Chit chat sections which are generally more light hearted.


Yes, welcome to the forum, Trudy. I hope you find it helpful and friendly. If you feel like it, let us know a bit about yourself and your sister and how you came to be her carer. I am mum to 3 adult children on the autistic spectrum, one of whom has moved out into a flat, where he will be getting some support.

Looking forward to hearing from you again.
