A new late joiner

Tell us a bit about yourself here.
Hi, I am new to the forum and just learning how to use it.
I cared for my mother intensely for 3 years (and more casually for quite some time leading up to that period), and she died in her home 6 years ago. She suffered from early stages of dementia, and kept almost dying but then recovering at a less able level. She had carers 4 times a day with whom I was in constant contact and I spent 3 hours every morning with her.
Although an ex-carer I might be able to contribute something to the discussion.
It would be great to hear from others who have had similar experiences.
Thanks, JojoS.
