Newbie just saying hallo for the first time

Tell us a bit about yourself here.
I care for Tom who has special needs. Tom is physically strong and active and he is a teenager. He enjoys outdoor activities and he is especially interested in trains.

I previously cared for elderly parents for over twenty years; both are now dead and I miss them very much.

I'm not naturally suited to being a carer. Some things I enjoy are cooking for the family. Some things I struggle with include being patient and dealing with personal care.

I've just volunteered to become a carer's champion working with GPs and I'm looking forward to getting started. I'm going to attend a briefing in London tomorrow.

Best wishes,

Larry Gardiner
