Hi Jean, welcome to TP.

I too care for my husband, though he's now at end stage, and in a care home.

It's hard work, but you'll find lots of support here.

Just post any questions you have, or join in any thread, we always appreciate as many opinions as possible.

All the best,

Welcome Jean I too am in North Wales and you might like to ask your local Alzheimer's Branch about the North Wales Forum for people with dementia.

It is a lovely group for you both to attend if you have transport. We meet every six weeks very informal but lots of support.

You will find a wealth of support and help here on TP so post as often as you need to. My husband had a very positive response to Aricept.
