Emotional Help

22nd September 2015

No-one prepares you for the time when you realise that you have become the parent of your parents or carer for your elderly relatives.

Unlike raising a family there are not thousands of manuals, books or shared experiences.  It’s a stage of life that no-one really wants to talk about.

One of the hardest things to get to grips with is the emotional upheaval that comes with it.  Whether you’re caring from a distance, or have your parent living with you; if they are both still alive, or you are coping with the grief of losing a parent – its all really difficult.

This section aims to help you get to grips with the emotional stuff a bit more – to recognise that you’re definitely not alone, weird or bad.
