My elderly father has parkinson's and dementia, and if I take him out e.g. to the garden centre/ shopping centre/ National Trust tea-shop etc I now find it quite stressful and lonely, as he doesn't really talk, and sometimes I struggle to manage everything on my own.
I feel it would be great if I could find someone in a similar situation, and then we could push wheelchairs together and have a natter?
But I have no idea how to find someone in the same situation?
There are carers groups in lots of areas. I would ask at your GP surgery. I am trying to think about the support groups I know about but I think I get lots of stuff via ds2s school. I will look at some of the stuff i have and post again if I find any links.
