My son was brain damaged at birth, when I was 27. Whilst my friends had careers, I had to care for my son, so hyperactive he couldn't sit still. My only respite was the special playgroup. I tried carers groups many times, but always the same problem. Everyone else was a pensioner caring for a spouse...
15 years ago my husband died unexpectedly in his sleep, from a massive heart attack, when he was 58, I was 54. I was really in a state of shock for a long time.

As she has just had a mental capacity assessment you just need Power of Attorney. Talk to a solicitor local to the home and get them to do it when you visit next. Then no one can challenge it!!!
Paula, my mum hovered between life and death for almost a year. I never knew if I was going to find her perky and chatty, or laid immobile, talking gibberish, when I was unable to make any sense of what she was saying. It's all horrible, try to look after yourself. I was very stressed. Try to make a...
Have you arranged a director? It's so much easier to do it before it's needed. Otherwise you will end up having a call like we did. This was an answer phone message.... "Your mother has died, what do you want us to do with her body?". Father in law was supposed to be arranging this but would not giv...
