Blair in the Kent Area

Hello,

I'm Blair. I live with my partner, who suffered a massive stroke in Janaury, and has now been discharged from hospital just over 6 weeks ago. It is a huge learning curve for me, and that is without the emotional aspect which has to be dealt with (by both of us). Due to personal circumstances, it is so easy to feel (and be) isolated here, but hopefully, CarersUK, may help lessen that sense of isolation. Also it would be good to learn of others' experiences in dealing with Stroke Rehabilitation and all the attendant problems.
Many thanks.

Hi Blair,
Welcome to the forum. Has anyone talked to you about a Needs Assessment for your partner, a Carers Assessment for you, and the benefits which you might be entitled to?

Take care,

Thank you to all the lovely folk who welcomed me to the forum/group. Crazy I know, but this is the first time I've had the opportunity to sign on again.....how is that for time management?

I know I have to get used to this way of living, (mainly around my partner's needs, which are pretty demanding), but no-one prepares you for this - and it is just the most difficult set of circumstances to deal with!

Again, many thanks to you all....and will be back, when time allows!
