In the below podcasts, I interview carers anonymously so they can talk honestly and openly about particular issues they have faced and the way they have learnt to deal with them.
At the end of each podcast I reflect on the key points and insight which can help others in a similar situation.
“Would you have do it it all again? Yes, but I would have looked after myself more and asked for more support.”
“Whilst putting all my love and energy into my caring role, I lost my individuality but I am so much more than just a carer.”
“When I found out we may not have much longer together, I felt our love deepen.”
“As a carer, I took on the worry for my husband so he didn't have to think about it.”
