Hi My dad was diagnosed in July, and has been given 18 months, he is 76. My mum is his carer, but is finding everything such hard work and she is exhausted trying to take in all the new information. Dad is peg fed and is deteriorating rapidly. I think mum would benefit from talking to other carers, and I am going to help her to register on here also. So if there are any carers in Leighton Buzzard, it would be great to know.

Thanks

Hi Charli,

You may find that there is a regular meeting your Mum could attend in your area where she could meet other carers. It may not be for her - but it may be worth considering, everyone is different.

I think Leighton Buzzard would be covered by the Luton & South Bedfordshire branch - website here (http://www.mndassociationlutonsouthbeds.org/)

Best Wishes,

Robyn
