<t>I came to bed really early tonight, 8pm, too tired to do anything rather than watch TV snuggled down in bed.......until 11pm. Lifeline phone call, mum fallen again, paramedics called. Fortunately this time the paramedic was able to pick mum up off the floor, once she'd rested in his chair for a f...
<t>Hi Zebada,<br/> I went through a similar bad patch when my son was little. He was brain damaged at birth, with a brother 2 years older, and we were trying to restore a cottage from a dump to a palace. I was in jeans and sweatshirt constantly, such a shame looking back. You should have been put in...
<t>Hi Gemma,<br/> It might be worth having a word with your course leader. My college had a Hardship Fund for undergraduates who were struggling financially. I hope there is one for you, we need more good social workers who really care. Alternatively, is there anyone who could approach the Rotary Cl...
Hi Rosie,
Sorry to hear about your husband's declining health. It might be worth asking Carers UK for a benefit check, just to make sure that you are getting all the help which you are entitled to.
<t>My son is now 32, but in my role as Chairman of a Charity concerned with disabled children, I remember pleading with the authorities to change the system so that the "professionals" came to the children in one place, rather than the children being dragged here there and everywhere. We waited for ...

<t>Dear Mal,<br/> I think you are doing a wonderful job but need far more help than you are getting. I know nothing of the disease, just wondered if you were in touch with anyone else who had cared for someone with it. I found that I learned far more from other mums with the same condition as my son...
Hi Tracey,
Make sure that you have a benefits check, money doesn't make anyone better but it can certainly make life easier with a dishwasher, tumble dryer etc. Do you have carers coming in to help you at all?
<t>Hi David,<br/> You ought to be supported very well, as it would cost the authorities far more to care for your relatives in a care home situation, however I suspect they might not be offering you everything which they should. Get a benefits check from Carers UK or a local disability advice centre...
<t>After being discharged and readmitted to hospital within 24 hours, mum has now been in contact with another Occupational Therapist. Mum has had a long term pressure sore, and so they have agreed to provide mum with a ripple bed. I told the OT that the real cause of this sore is the unsuitability ...
