My 80 year old husband has had dementia for the last 10 years and at 72 I am his carer. He has deteriorated in the past 12 months, both physically and mentally. I rarely get a nights sleep and if I am not in the room with him during the day, he calls my name constantly. He has no short term memory, is partially sighted and deaf. I have worked all my life, and I should be able to enjoy my retirement, but everything revolves around John. Care homes are expensive, so I have to manage.
