Welcome John, Yes, forms and social services access quite ridiculous. I too am caree for 84 yr old mother who broke hip so I understand some of the sagas you are going through. Some of the things I had to fight for were physio to get walking again, appointment for built-up shoes as operation was com...
<t>Welcome Teresa, There are lots of us out here going through the same thing. I too work full-time while caring part-time for my mum. The only thing you can be sure of is guilt that you are not doing enough in work coupled with not spendingenough time at home. Unfortunately we can't be cloned. Char...
<t>Hi Bossy Boots, Just to say welcome and we do understand here exactly what you mean. I don't think there is an easy answer but this forum helps to have a rant!! I often wish I could be nicer to my mother, and stop snapping. Before caring, I think I used to be nice. In many ways, I was a different...
<t>Sorry, both. I should have checked first. I had the same problems last night at my branch of Boots and am waiting for them to call me back once they have checked with Head Office. Not much point them advertising this if they do not inform the branches! Apologies again for the wild goose chase . ....

<t>Hi, Alison, you have my admiration. I can only imagine caring for gran plus young children. I personally feel a mother is quite enough to cope with. It's very true that as they get old, they get crafty. My mum "falls asleep" when certain people visit, especially her youngest sister! At first it w...
<t>Welcome, Linda, I understand entirely. I am still trying to live my life while caring for mother. Your comments re relatives is a sore point at the moment. My mother's brother (who visits max twice a year) has just suggested to her that she should not live alone and that I should move in. This is...
<t>Hi Patricia, welcome from another daughter caring for mother. I do understand the worries of having medical problems yourself while caring for someone else. I had chicken pox earlier this year which was a nightmare. To fall ill, with no-one else to look afte caree, is my worst fear. Don't worry a...
<t>Hi all, I really relate to these posts as I too am single, working full-time and attempting to look after a mother who is very reluctant to ask for outside help (not that relatives have ever offered).Oh and did I mention her two elderly cats to whom we are both devoted. Last year, when I felt I m...
<t>Hello to all, not sure if I am entitled to call myself a carer, as I still work full-time. In comparison to many others on this site, I realise I have it easy. However, I do care for my 83 year old mother who in the last couple of years has had cancer, broken her hip resulting in restricted mobil...
