Good Morning Kim
I care for my husband too and he is much older. I do agree you have to make time for YOU as it is impossible to care for someone long term without looking after yourself.
Can you tell us a little more? This is a very supportive Forum and we do understand the issues involved in caring and how complex it can be at times.
I wanted to wish you a warm welcome to the forum and to highlight some of the options for connecting with fellow carers and for getting support from Carers UK should you need it.
Carers UK are running online weekly meet ups for carers to take some time for themselves and chat to other carers. Feel free to join if you’d like to and there’s no pressure to share anything you don’t want to. I’m sure you’ll find others in a similar position to yourself.
You can find information on how to register to our online meetups at the following pages:
This social is a great way to have a little break if you are able to and spend some quality time talking to people who understand what you are going through right now.
We are also running Share and Learn online session weekly, these sessions range from creative writing activities to beginners Latin dance sessions.
Please have a look at the above links Kim, we would love to see you there.
with best wishes
