Older Carer

MP (62) has cared for her husband (72) for more than two years. He has physical mobility problems and impaired cognitive behaviour. She was referred by her Locality Leader at Norfolk Carers Support, who said: “Her role is extremely stressful and leaves her mentally and physically exhausted. Her husband refuses any other help and therefore MP receives no support. This has had a huge impact on her well-being and she is in desperate need of a break away from home and a trip to visit her elderly aunt.”

We paid for the train fare to Plymouth and overnight accommodation so she could enjoy a short break.
