“I am mum to Josie 15 and triplets Jamie, Phoebe and Amelia 13. Phoebe and Amelia have a rare condition called GRIN2b. They are profoundly disabled needing round the clock care.
“As a family, we do absolutely everything for them throughout the day and night such as changing their pads, dressing, feeding through their gastrostomies, bathing, medication, turning them in bed.
“Caring for the girls is what we do as we love them dearly but it is never ending and physically demanding. It’s hard. It is restricting and isolating.
“When Caring Together walks through the door we feel the weight of responsibility lift. Sometimes you do feel like you’re the only person in the world who is in this situation. To know that you have support is amazing.”
You can help us support more carers like Ruth today
Looking after someone who can’t cope without your support can be hard but you can help make a difference to carers in Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Norfolk. Your support could help give carers of all ages:
- a break from their caring role enjoying a trip or activity
- support in their home for the person they look after from a qualified care worker
- a grant or bursary to help their health, wellbeing, education or employment opportunities
- the practical and emotional support they need through our helpline.
