Hello all,

I’m new to this forum, just trying out a new post to see if it works

Welcome to the forum. I have a 44 year old son, brain damaged at birth. Constant battles with Social Services.

Hi Patrick,

Hello and welcome

I am caring for my 84 year old husband and am 61. This Forum is a total lifesaver and members totally understand the issues other carers face.

Welcome to the forum Patrick
I’m an ex carer. My late husband suffered strokes, vascular dementia and other health issues. He eventually lived in a nursing home. My family and myself visited most days. Much missed
I hope you will find some comfort from the forum. I certainly did and lots of support

Hi Patrick

Welcome to the Forum!

I’m looking after my mother who was diagnosed with 2 different cancers end of 2019 - surgery, chemo, radiotherapy …and now controlled. This is a slightly more sedate rollercoaster compared to helping her look after my Dad from 2015 onwards. He had vascular dementia, congestive heart failure, rheumatoid, cancer & other conditions until he passed in early 2020. I resigned from work in 2017 and set up my own business.

I went to the Carers UK conference in 2018 and since then been on/off the forum. It’s always reassuring to connect with other people who ‘get it’. Sending some virtual empathy and strength over to you!
