Good luck Steven. I wish you all the best.
Some form of respite for yourself is essential. You're in need of a good break. I know it feels awful and that we're turning our backs on our loved ones, but if you're in a mess it only make it all harder. Trust me, I know.
Nice one, BB.

Dear Michael, mate you sound like a saint. I honestly don't know what to say to you. Needless to say I sincerely do wish you all the best in what you do. Melly is probably right. Taste and smell are powerful ways of evoking the past. Consider perhaps a scented candle or music that might evoke memori...
Dear Virtualcarer,

I don't know where to start. All I can say is that I can well understand the stress you must be under.

I can't give much practical advice.

Try and make more time for yourself.
