Hi, my name is Nannysmurf24!

Hi everyone, ty for letting me join your group. Have just found out my husband of 48 has to have his leg amputated. Really don't know what lies ahead, so worried.

    Welcome to the community @Nannysmurf24

    It must be a really worrying time for you, We have lots of information about becoming disabled that might help you and your husband - it has things like benefits, social care, getting out and about and home adaptions.

    The community here is a warm and friendly place where you can chat, ask questions and get to know others and so I hope you enjoy it here, jump in and get involved and let us know if you have any questions. :)
