Hi Emma. I agree with Melly - you were very kind to your elderly friend and you gave her so much of your time and energy. I guess that your friends daughter was jealous of the closeness and love you shared. It sounds like she did not have a close, loving relationship with her mother. Now is the time...
Hi Sarah and welcome. Do not give up your job! Keeping your full time job brings you lots of good things that can be easily taken for granted such as socialising with others, learning new skills, having a purpose in life and much more. As a full time carer you are stuck with that one person every da...

But she doesn't want to tidy/clean ON HER OWN.So instead of cleaning and tidying up for her encourage her to tidy up together (eg for 30 mins or so at a time). That way she is mo...
I had the AstraZeneca vaccine in early March and suffered terrible side effects. To those of you who had side effects after the 1st vaccine - did you also get side effects from the 2nd dose?
Hello Claire and welcome to the forum, Sadly your MIL and FIL are not going to get better - they will just deteriorate further as they age. It's ireally important that you put your son and yourselves first. Your inlaws have reached a very good age so don't let them put you you and your partner under...
