My aim is to connect other parents with chronic illness and disability, creating a supportive community as well as useful resources for parents.
It’s really notable that if you search for resources for parents with chronic illness, you usually actually end up finding resources that are intended for parents of children who are suffering from illness instead. But parents who are ill themselves also need support, community and understanding.
This page aims to bring together resources you may find useful. If you have any suggestions for additions to this page, please do get in touch and let me know. I’m always on the look-out for more.
Facebook Support Group For Parents With Chronic Illness and Disability
You can join our Facebook support group for parents with chronic illness and disability by clicking here! Although there are loads of groups for parents of children who are poorly or disabled, I felt that there was a lack of groups for parents who are sick themselves. Being a parent with chronic illness is tough, and it’s easy to worry that you’re not doing a good job. Talking to other parents in a similar situation can be really helpful. It’s a small group at present, but I hope that it will grow with time! Why not join us?
