I would be interested to hear from carers who have returned to work following the loss of a parent. Fortunately, I managed to stay working full time as mum became a resident in a care home 12 months before she died. I returned to work two weeks after mum died at the end of April. Being the carer for someone with dementia has a profound impact upon you and you will never look at life in the same way again. I would love to hear about your thoughts, experiences and how you cope with the specific aspect of trying to get your life back to normal and move foward.
