for the moment i dont think so roseray
as long as ive got my health which i have been
lucky enough to have i will cope with it
the only problem is paying for it know
the last time it was £5.oo a week but they stopped it
now i would have too try too find about £70.00
just for 4or 5 hours just to get a little break

This is a major concern

This is a major concern for many carers Doug.Its not just trying to access decent care but also being able to afford it.
The main site has a wealth of information so if you have time take a good look round.

Did you give work up to care for your wife?
By the way,if these questions are too personal just tell me to shut up Image .Only post what you feel comfortable enough doing so ok.

no its not too personal

Those few words you typed

Those few words you typed cant even begin to cover everything you have both been through.
What about you Doug,you said your health fine just now but how do you cope.
I hope the next bit does not offend yourself or any other male looking in but sometimes in my experience men are expected to just get on with it,stiff British upper lip .
Whats been the biggest change to your life?
