What do carers say?

I look after my mother who has Alzheimer's. For the past five years I have been her main carer. I really like the idea of of pulling together the best information there is out there and making it available in one place, so I will be following the development of DISCOVER very closely. Bye for now.

I provide care for my father, who finds it difficult to get about as well as suffering other age-related conditions. However he still likes to keep his mind active and likes to get his hands on the latest gadgets, especially tablets - as the touchscreen is so much easier for him use; but the cost of these things, within a tight care budget, makes them unattainable and out of our reach.

Hello, I was a carer for my wife, but unfortunately she has now died. To have a resource available such as Discover would have been a great help for me to find information about her condition and to learn new things and find people going through similar situation to me.
