Because I'm not the Mummy

I've been wanting to blog about what it's like to care for a parent for a while and not been able to come up with the words.

Luckily, Zuska has done it for me, and for all of us who care for a parent or older person.  While the specifics are slightly different, the issues are exactly the same.

This post was linked to in Wallaby's Down Under Feminists' Carnival, which I found through Penthe.

A very interesting read - thanks for the link.

I really do feel for you and all that you're going through.

My mum is my dad's primary carer; I often wonder what will happen to her when he's gone? Who is going to care for her when I (the eldest) am 500+km away?
