I think this just highlights how vastly different all our "carees" are and how very different all their needs are. It also illustrates how we really are the best people to "know" them. I remember taking my daughter to speech therapy when she was about 4. I said to the ST that DD hated me out of her ...
Hi - can't stop but Lloyds Pharmacy are doing this free check for carers (usually £15) which I saw advertised on this site.

I'm off for mine later this afto.
Mand - I am really interested in reading about your daughter and her diagnosis. My daughter is also in her 20's (she looks much younger too) and I have always felt that she is on the autistic spectrum. We were very close to having her tested a few months ago, but that's all gone by the by now and I'...
Then maybe two tiers is the answer, might have already been suggested but there are many who are caring for people, children and adults who have no basic living skills at all and cannot be left alone for a minute who will never be able to go to work. In this instance the carers allowance would need...
<t>Very, very sad story and such a beautiful family. The word "selfish" always puzzles me when people are discussing suicide. A lovely friend of mine committed suicide last month and she had adult children and grandchildren who she adored. She had also been a carer. <br/> <br/> I think when a person...
Hi everyone - I haven't been on here for AGES, for one reason & another, but this is such an interesting thread. I became a carer about 10 years ago (for daughter with special needs) and work just a few hours a week now. She is now in her 20's and would love a job but nothing as yet. Shaw Trust, Job...

My Mum has just received her first ever Blue Badge. We applied & received it within a week - is this a record? I am SO impressed. http://dev.carersuk.org/j3/images/icon_biggrin.gif It will make life so much easier when I take her out. She's 84, has had bowel cancer twice and gets tired and sometimes...
Really sorry to read this .... I feel for you! I had my car broken into once and handbag & contents stolen but this is way worse and must be SO distressing. Hope you M-I-L is OK. now Gem.
Had a phone call to say that all the work can be done and Mum won't have to contribute anything. So that's a relief! It won't be done for some time though and definitely not before her op. so now we have another lady coming out soon to see what can be done in the interim. I have to say a BIG thank y...
