Grandparents Who Parent - Support group
Having full-time care of your grandchildren can be very rewarding but also challenging. Grandparents might sometimes feel physically and emotionally drained by their caring role. The demands of being a parent for the second time, can impact in multiple ways – your ability to work and earn an income; your ability to maintain peer friendships; dealing with grief and loss (yours and the children’s) are all factors that can impact on your wellbeing.
