Whomever is reading this I wonder if anyone can offer any advice. My mum was diagnosed approx 30 years ago and my dad has been her main carer ever since. He’s amazing! Does everything he can for her but he’s struggling (he’s 72) and I’m trying to do all I can to support them both. Can anyone offer me any ideas about supporting my dad and what support my mum can get. She’s a very proud lady but she needs help physically and my dad is struggling with this. I would like to try and help them find a suitable carer for a few hours a week so my dad can have some downtime and not worry about her at home on her own and wondered if anyone could advise me of where to find a suitable carer? My dad is also very proud but he’s struggling, in fact they’re both struggling but won’t admit it.
Thank you in advance.
