    Hello everyone. Just wanted to say there is an article on the online BBC News - Health section which might be of interest.

    It's a report from Age UK about 'Elderly Carers' and thought it worth mentioning it here.

    Apologies, I am new, first post and I'm not allowed to link to a site.
    May come back later elsewhere.

    How does one define 'elderly'? I cared for my late wife 24/7 year on year at home till her passing when I was 77. At no stage did I consider myself as elderly. "We are all different" and thank God for that.

    Hi Padraig
    the actual headline to the article is
    'Hidden army' of carers in their 80s, says Age UK
