New here


I look after my wife who has a chronic illness slowly deteriorating since diagnosis in the late nineties. She is now primarily in a powered wheelchair by day, and has two professional carers visit her three times a day. I shall leave it at that until I have seen how the forum functions in practice. Then I hope to comment where I have experience, and benefit from what I expect is considerable collective knowledge here.

Hi Nick: welcome aboard!

Sounds as if you have quite a bit of experience yourself! My wife had a spinal cord injury in 2014 and uses a wheelchair. I’m her outboard motor some of the time!

Hi Nick, Welcome to the forum.
It must be incredibly difficult watching your partner decline.
Are you getting enough help?
When did you both last have a holiday?
