Thank you for your kind messages, both here and on Facebook, after my post about our current complicated life.
Our Older Relative is now home, with us, and we are getting used to a new "normal". We are grateful for the care workers who visit at home and that we can have this support, at this time.
Apologies for writing rather less than usual. We have a half term break, this week, which means that there is a little more time. Hopefully, the younger children and I will manage a long day trip: I'm really thankful for my husband and the help that we have which make this possible.
When I was working, my specialty was Medicine for Older People. It is strange to be on the other end, as a carer and to experience, at first hand, the positives and negatives of the system as well as the challenges and joys of looking after an older person.
