Unique journey of parent carers

  • Middle Stage: coping with conflicting advice; realising things cannot always be fixed; noticing unsustainable physical and emotional effort; ; emergence of chronic sorrow; navigating service systems; exposure to disability discrimination and lack of opportunities.

  • Later Stage: reframing ‘normality’; drawing on range of expertise; developing confidence; connecting with other families; advocating for services.
