I care for my husband, who had a severe stroke almost nine years ago. Only recently became aware of this forum and feel it would be good to chat to others in a similar situation. I am 68; he is 72

Hi Anne and welcome,

there are other who are / have been in the same situation as you, hopefully they will be along shortly.

You might like to post on Roll Call - this is like a chat over the garden fence - not as busy as it used to be, so new contributors are very welcome https://www.carersuk.org/forum/social-a ... call-44233

You might also like the Cuppa for Carers, https://www.carersuk.org/help-and-advic ... ne-meetups

Hi Anne, welcome to the forum.
Have you been told about Attendance Allowance and Council Tax Exemption?
Are you getting all the support you need from Social Services?

Hello Anne & welcome to the forum

I would guess you could also help others in a similar position. You must have gain loads of knowledge and experience looking after your husband.
