Hi @Prof’s wife, thanks for your comment. This indeed is what has happened in the intervening period since I first started this thread. My wife has been in a care home since May 2019 and - despite interruption due to Covid - this has proved a good solution for both of us. She is kept safe and looked after 24 hours a day in a way that was beyond me. She seems content and pleased to see me when I visit. We don't do much more than eat goodies, have a laugh and listen to music. But it is quality time together that had become almost lost when I was her drudge and sole carer.
