    Hi @allyparker - I'd also like to welcome you to the community. I'm sorry to read about all the problems yourself & family are facing; it can't be easy. I wonder if you're getting any support to help you cope with it all?
    At the top of this page you'll see Scope's 'Advice and support link' leading to the 'Online advice and support,' where you may find some information that's helpful.
    Here's a link to Carers UK also: https://www.carersuk.org/
    You will find that people here really help & support each other, as, altho' we all have a different set of circumstances, we do have a little understanding. So I'm pleased you've found us, & hope you enjoy getting to know other people.
