HinSylvia. I think you and your husband are absolute saints for putting up with your mother in law!!! The sad truth is she is only going to get worse so I agree with Jenny and Chris about putting her into a Care home. It sounds like she has little (or no) respect for you and your home. You shouldn't...
Hi Jacqueline. I know how you feel. I have been caring for my mum for three years now. At first I didn't even think about days off and breaks but Mum has gradually got more needy. As she has got older she is in more pain and has become depressed. Also my Dad needs help now too. I have two sisters wh...
Thanks for your reply, Henrietta. I agree with you that the medical professionals could be doing this to save money. Or maybe it's because their research suggests that it is more beneficial for the two age groups to have different vaccinations. I really hope their new vaccinations work effectively a...
Adult Carers are entitled to a free of charge Flu vaccination.(One of the very few perks of being a Carer!). Well this autumn there are now 2 types of flu vaccination. The first one is for people 65+ and is called the Trivalent flu vaccine. This protects people from 3 strains of flu virus. This also...
Yes that is very good advice from Jenny. Gaming is very addictive and is such a waste of time. There was a newspaper article a few months ago about a 10 year old boy who was so addicted to video games that he wouldn't go to the toilet and ended up having to have bowel surgery!!! Obviously that is an...
Hi Glynis, You are not alone. Sadly there are quite a few young men out there who won't/can't work due to depression and anxiety. And then because they have plenty of time on their hands they play xbox/ online games for hours and hours. Your son is 33 so I assume that he did work full time until rec...
Hi Belinda. You are in a similar situation to the one I'm in. My dad is 90 and my mum 88 this month. They live independently in a bungalow, five mins from whrre I live. My dad recently had to go to hospital and the SS recommended 4 care visits per day ( to care for my dad) but after a few visits my ...
Another idea is to do simple upper body exercises eg just sitting in a chair you can do arm exercises and neck exercises (details on the internet). When you feel stronger you could buy some free weights to strengthen and tone your upper body. You wont lose weight doing these exercises but these are ...
Hi Jane. Welcome to carersuk. It sounds like you've been coping remarkably well since your husband's serious illness. I'm sorry to hear about your ankle injury. Hopefully it is only temporary and will gradually heal. I know how you feel because I had a similar situation. I care for my elderly mum an...
HHi Claire. I aam absolutely amazed at all what you have to do!!! Your poor dad has really suffered. He has had a long list of serious health problems. Has your dad considered going into a Nursing home? This would certainly make life a lot easier for you and he would get specialist care. I'm sure yo...
