Thank you for joining us on the community
and for sharing your experience. Hopefully others reading this can share their
own experiences with you. You are also welcome Amandah to get involved with
other conversations on the community.
It’s important to also look after yourself.
We know how difficult it can be to take time to do this when you’re a carer.
Hopefully the information for carers on our website can be of some help. You
can have a look at this information here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/being-there/support-carers/your-needs
Can I ask if you have had a carer’s
assessment? In many cases the local authority can provide support for carers
and you can discuss with them what you feel your needs are and what is needed
to help you care for your husband.
Being a carer can be physically and
emotionally tough and many people tell us that it can be helpful to talk. In
addition to the support of this community we are also available with a
listening ear on 0800 090 2309 or via our webchat.
