Carers

We are the forgotten souls who work 168 hours a week caring for those we love.  In days gone by, this sort of devotion was expected and simply done because it was one’s duty.  Today we carers are more inclined to think about it, decide how we shall do and then go ahead and do it, but at the same time we want control of our own lives too … we want to do our own thing too …

We’re here when you’re ready to fly …

When dementia first hits families, the initial shocked reaction is that you think your life as you have known it has either come to an end, or it has gone on hold … but this need not be so … all you have to realise is that it is taking a different route and, contrary to those days of old, you do have support out there and you do have others who know what you’re going through … and we are here to help you.  Every single one of us who has been or is still a carer will know the stories you have to tell … and will listen to you and will share the tears with you … and when you’re ready will guide you on that new journey …

You really do not have to do this alone.

The next pages will grow as this website grows, going with the ebb and flow as need arises.  Send us your stories and talk with us about issues that matter here.
