Carers

Tell us a bit about yourself here.
Hi I .am Dave would like to meet if possible carers in similar position as me.I am finding it very hard and feel isolated looking after my wife. I live in Darlington. Kind Regards Dave.
Hi Dave , welcome to the forum. I'm in the New Forest, caring for my son with learning difficulties part time. He's 37, has his own flat, comes home alternate weekends. All four parents , husband and brother now dead. The older I get, the more difficult it is, simply due to lack of energy and my own failing health. Narrowly avoided hospital myself this week due to a vicious cough. Can I ask how old your wife is, and what she suffers from?
Hello, sorry to hear your story its very hard. My wife has ms and its affected her brain she is 65 next month, anyway hope you can take care. Kind Regards Dave.
Welcome to the forum Dave.
Am so sorry to hear your wife has MS. Very difficult and heartbreaking for you.
My husband, alas is now in a nursing home. Has vascular dementia and suffered strokes.
I do hope you will keep in touch as you will find the forum very friendly and supportive. You can vent if you want to. No one judges.
Lovelly kind words thankyou so much, hope you can cope. Kind Regards Dave.
