The inspiration for this advisory service was my mum, Anne. In 2013, I took on what has probably been the most challenging role of my life so far, helping to care for my mum who had Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and more latterly vascular and MS related dementia.
For three and a half years I helped to get her the best care I could, both at home and then in a nursing home, despite living 100 miles away. I supported her as much as possible both practically and emotionally. Sadly she passed away in the summer of 2016.
After my mum passed away I began to think about how many other people must be in the same position as my mum and I. My mum wanted to remain living independently for as long as possible, but without my help she would have struggled to do that for as long as she did. When it became apparent that care at home was no longer possible, I had to navigate my way through choosing and funding a nursing home place, which was complex and time consuming. I think there maybe other people in a similar situation to us who don’t have someone that can help and support them.
My aim is to help as many people as possible, young or old, to get the help and support they need to make their lives easier. I think it is very easy for people, especially the elderly, to fall through the cracks in the current health and social care system. Read more
