The pressure felt by those caring for family members is growing, Lack of support, albeit with charities doing the best that they can, is making a difficult situation much worse. This is a powerful read.
Charities valiantly attempt to cover the abdication of responsibility by local governments but they are overstretched and underfunded. What carers require is practical assistance; respite homes available at short notice, where loved ones can stay to enable the person looking after them to have a good night's sleep. Day centres for people with early-onset Alzheimer's that stimulate them and let their carers take a well-earned break. Where these do exist, places are like gold dust.
