My wife has dementia and I work. I’m worried about catching the Coronavirus and then not being able to look after my wife. What should I do.

hello @twojonboy
a warm welcome to DTP

I appreciate your worry, many here share it
I don't think there's an answer to your question ... we each need to follow the guidance we're being given and make decisions best for our individual circumstances

I guess take measures that will help reduce risk .... maybe immediately change clothes and shower on arrival home ... wash hands and surfaces .. before greeting your wife

do you have any family support that could help out if you do have to isolate yourselves
