"I feel I am now on an even keel and able to cope with being a carer"

About: Six Degrees Social Enterprise (CIC)

(as a service user),

I felt I needed the service because I found myself in a situation which was very stressful. My husband had a severe stroke but since then he was in hospital after having severe pneumonia, and as a result his progress after having the stroke was held back. I, as his carer, have found life particularly difficult.

We decided to move from our house to a smaller flat. The whole process was very stressful for various reasons and as a result I felt almost suicidal. My sons suggested I get some help which I did but now I feel I am now on an even keel and able to cope with being a carer and all of the responsibilities it now entails.
