Tell us a bit about yourself here.
HiHi my names Cheryl. I'm a full time carer to my Dad. My Mum passed away to cancer on the 10th she was only 61. She cared for my Dad most of their married life. I used to help. When mum got ill about 20 months ago I cared for both. Don't half miss her. I have a daughter age 20 and a son age 3. Work part time evenings as a cleaner at the local NHS offices. Gave up my part time day job at Iceland to care full time for Dad. Spend all days here and sleep in the spare room with my son. Occasionly I manage to sleep at home when brothers can manage to stop. t's hard for us all speacialy after loosing my lovely mum, but we are a close family and we cope. Found this site so thought I would give it a go. Although I have friends and family, they don't understand how hard it is to be a full time carer. Nice to meet you all. Cheryl xx Image
