Hi... I am new to TP. I am FT Carer for my OH who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s over 2 years ago. He has deteriorated slowly over that time and I now can’t leave him alone with any degree of confidence that he’ll be safe. I have only recently started to look for ways of carving out a regular period of time for me as my mental state has suffered due to the relentlessness of caring for him. The Shared Lives scheme has been mentioned to me. Anyone out there with any experience of using their services?
