New to the site but not to caring

Hiya I am new to this group but not to caring. As the name suggests I have been a caring for 20 years to my daughter K. K is 20 and has disabilities that read like a shopping list, but she is happy & healthy for the most part. True to form I have just managed to 'get in here' and we have to go out. I will be back later but wanted to drop in and say HIYA!

    Hi and welcome! I hope you enjoy being part of the community, and we look forward to learning from your experiences as a carer. If you have any tips you'd like to add to our tips section too, that would be great: I'm sure you've picked up plenty of useful ideas over the past 20 years!

    Hiya Emma, Thank you. I will have a little read through the tips, see if I can pick any up or drop some off. :)

    Emma is it possible to read in order of date? I am not sure if I am looking in the right places, but some of tips, discussions etc are out of date with so many changes recently and more to come. PIP, Universal Credit, & the recent changes to Carer Allowance.
