As you as a parent get older, you may have to cope with your own changing health needs, as well as continuing to care for your son or daughter. Find out what support is available to you.
For many family carers, one of their greatest concerns is what will happen to their son or daughter with a learning disability if something should happen to them.
Someone with a learning disability will grieve in the same way as anyone else when they lose someone they love.
My husband and I provide continuous care, with six weeks respite a year.
