Psychological effects of being cared for my your child. : LUSENET : Disabled Parents Network : One Thread

I'm a student nurse studying the psychological effects of being cared for my your child. The case study I'm looking into is of a 48 year old woman with a rare form of arthritis. Her 16 year old son helps her to bath etc. There seems to be very little research into the psychological effects this can have on the disabled parent. Has anyone got any helpful thoughts? Thanks.

Try getting in touch with Young Carers projects (they are set up all around the country) and also the Joseph Rowntree Foundation ( may have conducted research on this subject?
