<t>Tristesa, sorry to hear about your experience. I have had some experience of being criticised by a family member for things in the past. I think it is very upsetting especially when we are grappling with so many turbulent emotions that come with the caring role. I would so like to be given some p...
<t>Hello Steve,<br/> <br/> I live with my disabled mother, and I work part time. I discovered that it is best for me if I don't go straight home after finishing work. If I can pop in the library for a short time, or browse around a few charity shops, before going home I feel heaps better. It just gi...

My sister in law, who used to work in a care home, has cut her nails, so that problem has been sorted!
<t>She doesn't go to a day centre. I am not sure that the district nurses do nail cutting. I am not sure if I am just feeling totally overwhelmed and everything seems impossible. I think maybe the nail issue is sending me to the edge of coping. I could have coped myself with the nail cutting a month...
<t>Does anyone know if there is a free or reasonably priced way to get my mum's fingernails cut at home. Her hands are very deformed by rheumatoid arthritis and some fingers don't straighten. I find it so difficult to do, and my eyesight is not fantastic. She has a Carer come and wash her, but she w...
