This true story of love, devotion and distress is addressed to medical and social services professionals, fellow 24/7 home carers and the lay public.

 

At 67 Tom retired, looking forward to well-earned years of travel and fun with his wife Margaret. Then came Alzheimer’s.

 

It could happen to any of us. Tom is just one of the global millions of home carers looking after loved ones stricken, in later life, with Alzheimer’s and other terminal diseases.

 

Tom, now 83, gives a phlegmatic account of looking after his wife at home for fifteen years, grieving over her descent into almost total incapability while coping with the many practical and organisational problems along the way.

This sometimes harrowing tale describes a lifestyle that few medical professionals appear to comprehend, yet brings a glimpse of humour, hope and personal fulfillment.
