I am 51 yers old and have been caring for my 60 yer old husband with Alzheimers and Vascular Dementia for 2 years and 6 months now. The thing that I have found the hardest to cope with is the fact that nobody visits anymore. The only person supporting me is a friend a few streets away who lost her husband 3 years ago. I am unable to go to Church anymore with my kids because it is unsafe to leave him on his own.Of all the people in our Church there is 1 single Mum who has rung to see if I need anything. My daughter and son still live at home but my daughter works full time and my son suffers from Depression and says that he can not cope with his Dad so I am basiclly on my own. I would love to her from others about how they cope.
