Because my employer gives me flexibility to look after my Dad who suffers from sight loss, I can visit him each morning to check in and administer his eye drops before work.

If he has a GP or hospital visit, I don’t feel guilty about asking for time out. It’s all about flexibility and understanding. I feel valued as a member of the team and a carer for my Dad.
