Please don't think I'm being invasive here! I so, please send me a Private Message! I am interested to see how others' situations compare with my own. Remember, these polls are entirely anonymous. Some people like myself have a wife - or other relative - who has dementia, and where they now live in a care home of some sort. Others have managed to continue to care for the person in their own home, or the person has moved in with the carer. Yet another group care for someone at a distance - the person still lives at home, either on their own, or with someone else, but needs frequent visits and help. Finally, there is a group where the person knows the relative or close friend has a problem of dementia, but they live far away, perhaps even in a different country, and it is not possible to do any hands-on caring at all. I have no idea how many people fall into each of these groups and there will be other situations that are not covered in the poll questions.
