Hi, I'm a caregiver for someone with CP...

Postby jenm71 » Wed Apr 25, 2012 6:36 pm

Hi, my name is jen. I am the primary caregiver for a young woman with pretty severe CP. (I work through an agency.) I've been taking care of her since fall of last year.
I guess I'm just looking for somewhere I may be able to see information, and maybe just someone to talk to about when things get rough.

She is a WONDERFUL girl, and I love her to bits. Specially when she's in a good mood, but when she's mad about something, or has a stomach ache... :x look out.

she is physically like a large infant. She can't do anything for herself, can't speak, won't drive her chair. Mentally it's rough to say because she can't speak. I think maybe, and I know this is a large window) between 12-16... Maybe?

Well I'll stop for now, or I won't. Glad I found this forum.

How long have you been working as a caregiver?
