yes- like sylvia said I'm 15 but i help care for my uncle with my mum, we work together really like a team- she does all the tlaking to the doctors n etc and I try to help my uncle at home- now hes moving to a care home i dont do this so much- more just visiting him and chatting to him
ps: thanks sylvia for explaining on my behalf!
In fact i am 22. It is my Nan i am caring for, her only son (my dad) passed away almost two years ago who i also cared for while he was terminally ill. I am Finding it extremely difficult becasue she is progressing so rapidly and has gone from being a bit forgetful to not recognising anyone in a matter of weeks.
It just goes to show that this disease can affect people of all ages!
