I am in my 70's and until my husband became very poorly in May I looked after him for 5 years with dementia and unfortunately he passed away in July.
I must admit being a carer is a 24 hour job but until his last few months of life I must say we were very lucky. We did always seem to get good support from the Alzheimers cafe which is run by Gary and also the Phoenix group which I am still able to go to each week.
I am hoping now that I can be of some help to other carers because in my honest opinion unless you have a loved one with this awful illness no one knows what it is like. I just wish I had him still to look after.
