Caring can have a big impact on both your mental and physical health, as well as your overall wellbeing.

    Angelo, our Knowledge Officer (Wellbeing) is our expert on this topic. He will be here to answer your questions on Thursday 29 August between 3-4pm.

    My wife Wendy aged 68 Yrs passed peacefully away at home on SAT 28th, after going through all of the stages of this horrible disease over the past 10 Yrs.
    We enjoyed 49 Yrs of a wonderful and loving marriage. I shall miss her very much.
    This site has given me the support whilst coping with this illness.
    Will visit the site regularly.
    Many thanks,
    Mike
