Hello Helen,

And welcome from me too. I also care for my mum with no family support but she suffers from various old-age related stuff. Very difficult when you are in a new area too. Do you get any support from local carers or MacMillan nurses? Lots of friendly people to talk to here, so talk away. Everyone is here to listen and help were possible. Take care, Anne

Hi and welcome Helen,
I am carer to my hubby who has COPD ( lung disease and breathing issues)..... It can be tough moving to a new town and I am sure you will make some new friends soon. Check with your local community centre for what is happening in the area and if there is a local carers group. Your doctors surgery might help with that. You must be feeling quite stressed with your mums situation too.
You will meet a lot of friendly supportive peeps on here where you can have a lovely chat.

cheers
Mags
