New here

Hi there. I’m new to the forum. I’ve been a carer for many years and recently been feeling very isolated, so I thought I would reach out and say hi.

Hello Trudy
Welcome to the forum. A friendly bunch we are. Would you like to tell us a little about your caring roll.
I was widowed in May, after 52 years of marriage. A very heartbreaking last five years as my husband had strokes, vascular dementia and other health issues.
Others will be along to welcome you shortly I’m sure.

Welcome to the forums!

Welcome, Trudy. I cared for my mum for 14 months at home with the help of LA assigned carers. Ive found people here very supportive. Almost always someone here has been through a particular circumstance before and are willing to offer their view and opinions.

Hi Trudy,
Welcome to the forum.
Do you have any regular “me” time arranged so that you can escape safely for a few hours?
