Hi Elizabeth,

And welcome to the Forum. Good news is you will find lots of people here who understand.

The sad news is that while you are coping, Social Services will take a step back. You need to contact them and ask for an assessment - could be anything from paid carers to occupational health assessment. This will take some of the load off your back.

I too work full(ish) time while caring for mum. Not easy! My mum has twice-daily carers who do meals / medication.

Yes, excercise helps - I do yoga and walking. This Forum helps even more Image .

Looking forward to "talking" to you,
Anne
