Plese help i am desperatly after some advice. My nan has Alzheimer's and my grandad is her carer but he is strgguling to cope everytime i speak to him he is getting more stressed and i am concerned he is going to become ill from caring for her. My grandad is about to turn 79 and my nan has just turned 78 and they live together in their own home. Our family is small and there is very little help from us my uncle has his own business to run his wife has her own job, his two youngest have just gone to uni & his eldest lives in London, although i only live 20 miles away i do not drive so getting to see my grandparents is awkward. I know i'm going on but my point is that my grandad is doing all the work and how do you tell him thart he can't carry on like this that he needs to get help or maybe the time has come for my nan to go into a nursing home before he comes ill. I know he wants to look after my nan for as long as possible. He has been told that financially he can get no more help than what he is getting as my nan does not need 24hr care so what help is out there that doesn't cost a foutune to help give him a break? Sorry it goes on!
