Hi Trish

I (together with my husband) am a parent carer - although my son is almost 25 so he isn't a child anymore! Rob has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Welcome to the forum.

Hiya Rosemary & Eun, my daughter is 15 now. Doesn't the time fly! Image
Hi Trish I am a parent carer I also care for my Mum, my daughter is 16 and has Downs Syndrome and ASD
Hi There, I'm mum to two children with autism.
I am a parent carer, my son is now 10yrs and I have been fighting for help for the past 8+yrs. I have had to come up against social services, education, my own gp, police, neighbours and even family.
It is so hard watching my son grow older, as as he gets older his difficulties seem more apparent.
Did you want to know anything in peticular?
hello there i too am a parent carer, my daughter is 34 and was physically disabled at 17yrs old. Map
