Hi Welcome to the forum

I care for my hubby but I know the feeling of being pulled in lots of directions. Lots of people on here to ask advice off or just to listen.

Hi, I've also had the experience of caring for both older and younger generations at the same time, thankfully with a great support team: my wife and two lovely older daughters. What support are you getting from your family at present, and what do you feel you need to keep your head above water?
