There are so many people that become carers to their partners and family members. They do it out of love and devotion and often at the cost of their own health. Carers make great personal sacrifices often without very little if any help. we must remember those that support need support too and often get forgotten.
I am of the age where a lot of friends have elderly parents and are having to make difficult decisions about long term care and what’s best for their well-being. We know only too well there comes a time when continual hospital stays are not the answer and the NHS are so over-stretched, but sadly so many elderly are home alone and vulnerable and prone to accidents.
Spare a thought for those that are alone and vulnerable and for those around them trying do the best they can.
