Hi my name is Maurice,
I am a carer for my wife who has C O P D type1 diabetes and failing eyesight
and I have been her carer for 16 years.

Hello Maurice and welcome.
16 years of caring means you probably have much experience to share with us.

Have you had a good look around the forum yet? Feel free to add to any thread or start new ones

What made you decide to join tonight in particular. Some people join at a time of crisis or a very low point


Hi Maurice, welcome to the forum.
Are you getting enough support. I’ve been a carer for 40 years, since my son was brain damaged at birth. One of the most difficult things I find is the lack of energy as I get older. It’s not only our carees who are getting older, it’s us too!
