Hello I am so new to all of this so please be patient with me, I am so looking forward to chatting to everyone. :slight_smile:

Hi Jane,

Welcome to the forum.

Have you been caring for long?

I care for S, he has autism plus other stuff.

When you are ready, tell us a bit more about your caring situation,


Hi Jane, you are amongst friends here. I’ve had a total of 10 family carees over a period of about 40 years, from newborn niece as mum had post natal depression, to mum who died when she was 87.
Now just my son who is 42, brain damaged at birth. He lives away from home, but comes home regularly, and rings me every night for a chat.
Most people find the forum when something specific is really challenging, so if you just tell us what problem you would like sorting, we might be able to come up with a few options.

Hi Jane & welcome

Can you tell us what brings you to the forum. The are very knowledgeable people on here. So ask away if you need a listening ear or need help with anything.
