Hi. I'm new to the forum, but not to caring.

Spent 20 odd years caring in learning difficulties.
Last 5/ 6yrs for dad, 2/3 living with him.
I’m 53 this year, and have two sons. One grown, and one 11this yr, who lives with me.
My dad his highly intelligent, but also highly annoying…lol x

Hello, Karen and welcome to the Forum. Feel free to tell us a bit more about yourself and your family any time you wish. Certainly offer any advice based on your long experience of caring, or seek advice from others here if you are tussling with any nagging problem any time.

Hi Karen, welcome to the forum

There are many people on here looking after their parents and this is a good place to share experiences (and frustrations!)

I don’t know if you’ve had a look around the rest of the website but there’s lots of information and resources which you may find useful. Our general help and advice page is a good place to start,and there is a link there to the latest Covid information and caring:

We are also hosting weekly webinars for our members to have a general chat and a quick tea break together, information is here:


Come along if you can

Best wishes
