Introducing myself

Hello everyone, 

I came across this website when trying to find some tips on the easiest way to shave my disabled adult son, who is not always cooperative with hair cuts and teeth brushing!

I am so pleased to find this community!

I am the mother of a 22 year young man who is mentally and physically disabled.  He is non-verbal, struggles with walking and has severe epilepsy. 

We are British citizens who have lived n Bermuda for nearly 30 years, but are planning to move to the UK in the summer.  It is a big and terrifying move, and I may need lots of advice about services and medical care etc.

Hoping to get to know you all, and find some support!
