Hello, Thank you for the support. My FIL is still very ill. His sepsis seemed to abate, but then, when he moved hospital for rehabilitation and physiotherapy, he caught pneumonia and had to return to the main hospital. He seems to be pulling through, but he has very little movement in his hands, he ...
Hello, This is just a quick update. My husband walked out of his mother's house yesterday and is refusing to come back. I have been fielding phone calls from my MIL, but I support my husband's decision. When I asked what 'care' he was providing, it turns out that there was very little practical care...
Hello, My husband has Asperger syndrome and I have found the forum 'Different Together' really helpful with respect to understanding a little more about neurotypical/neurodiverse relationships and in terms of gaining extra support.

He has a support worker who visits him 2 or three times a week; no activities; no therapies and so on. In fact, he was saying how much he missed some of the groups, when we ta...
Hello Bowling Bun, Thank you for the prompt reply. I will be complaining assertively this week. I want to have a look at his flat first and assess the extent to which he is looking after himself. The care providers do not begin with an 'R', but they are a private company who, whilst generally provid...
About two weeks ago, my eldest son (21) moved from the residential accommodation where he has lived for over three years. I have been involved in some of the planning and understood that he would move to supported flats, run by the same care company that supplied his residential accommodation, and h...
Hello,

I just wanted to reiterate what other posters have said. Caring is a job and you should be very proud that your eldest son has found employment. This is an achievement that probably would not have been possible without your commitment to care.
