newbie - Carers UK Forum


Tell us a bit about yourself here.
Hi I'm new on here. I care for mum and dad and have for about 6 year. dad is quite able bodied for 81. Mum is 80s. Mum has copd, heart failure, and an intestinal bleed that causes anemia. I live about 5 mile from them although my brother lives about 5 mins away but he works full time. I have a husband with cmt, two daughters with cmt and a grandson with cmt and a granddaughter without. They are all in the early stages so they don't need too much of my time although I try to help when I can. I just need a friendly ear at the moment. Many thanks

Cheers everyone. It's a bit confusing but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it lol x
Welcome from me too. Don't worry unduly about putting things in the right place. The mods are all very friendly and will move your post if they feel it's appropriate. I do hope that you manage to find some "me" time in your week. I used to say that once I'd gone to have my bath, they'd have to sort themselves out.
