Isolated carer struggles to get a break

I am the sole carer for my terminally ill Australian husband (78). I am also new to Australia. Being “new” brings a whole string of problems: what to do, where to go, how to fill out the staggering stack of mandatory forms etc., etc.

I have been totally isolated for the past year with no “respite break” whatsoever and with no family or friends the strain on me is unimaginable!
