Hi all, I`ve always felt this forum to be underused, mainly because all you wonderful carers are probably too knackered to bother posting. But just now, a few carers are adding their questions to old threads.
Please try to start your own, as they will get more up to date replies.
I think you are doing the most wonderful, but not always recognised for what you do, job!
My hubby was my sole carer for 11 years, despite having painful rheumatoid arthritis.
But we`ve had carers coming in for over 6 years now.
I feel it can be quite damaging for spouses to become sole carers.
Direct Payments pay for my carers and I am so grateful.
If anyone would like to ask me more about it, I`d be only too willing to try to help.
You can do this here or by private messaging me. I dont mind either way.
