“Being a carer has good days and bad days.”

Charity Carers UK tells the story of a woman who within one year became carer to both her young daughter and her husband, while suffering from a disability herself…

When Jocelyn’s daughter Amy was three-years-old she was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder which has resulted in multiple operations and requires extensive care. Just a year before Amy’s diagnosis, Jocelyn’s husband, Darran, a steel worker, was involved in a horrific industrial accident which resulted in him losing an arm and leg.

Jocelyn became carer to both. She herself has epilepsy and has had spinal surgery but continues to be wife, mother, nurse and counsellor as well as carer. Read Jocelyn’s story here.
