Carers week in the UK


By Susie Mallett, circa 1971-2

I always appreciate it very much when busy Emma Mcdowell finds time to write the long comments that she contributes now and then to our conductive postings on the blogosphere. I for one am always really interested to hear about her experiences being the mother, and carer, in a conductive family.

Here she is again in the Belfast Telegraph in an interview that was given during the UK Carers Week:

Combining being a parent or a partner with the role of official carer is always a very difficult task.

Snap!!!

Or should that be synchronicity?

Either way, I beat you by two minutes in filing a tribute to Emma!
