My wife doesn't recognise her husband anymore...

Very few experiences prepare you for the responsibility that comes with looking after the partner you have loved and shared your life with and counted on for years - particularly if they are at the mercy of dementia and now rely on you for everything.

Your desire to do the best for them whist trying to remain healthy, fit and capable yourself, is becoming increasingly difficult and emotionally draining.  It's leading to challenges in all aspects of your life, leaving you overwhelmed, frustrated and - all too often - desperately lonely.  But it's still hard to admit that you need help.

As a first step to redressing the balance for both of you, pick up the phone and talk to us.  Chosen with Care offers a personalised service that helps ease the pressure by finding the ideal care home solution for your dear partner, meaning you can concentrate on providing unstinting emotional support and love.

Thank you very much for you report. It makes excellent reading and I can see you have worked so hard on our behalf. We have been in touch with the care fees advisor you suggested and everything is going well. In the meantime I will call and visit the home in Hayward’s Heath as it is so local. I will let you know the outcome. With many many many thanks for a fantastic service .
