This is going to happen more and more as people live longer isnt it?
Blimey @Roseleigh it seems like years ago that I posted that but apparently it was only a couple of months ago. I am 63 now and one year fades into another.
I really fear that I am going to become that woman, dad is 89 and a half and could probably last another 4 or 5 years if his cancer doesn't get him first and to be honest that seems less and less likely as the years go by. How awful am I to think that way but yes you are right, as people live longer this will happen more and more.
You are not awful to think that way at all @Duggies-girl. I've heard many other people with loved ones facing both dementia and cancer say the exact same. x
This is me. I'm 70 and when I can persuade Mum to go out from her care home i wheel her around in a wheel chair . Mum is 95. I don't consider myself elderly but my Mum definite is !
I completely understand the overwhelming feeling of this is the rest of my life labelled 'a Carer'. I'm 38 and a full time carer of my grandmother who is 91. The only thing we can do as carers is take one day at a time x
