Rita is a carer for her partner Graham, they have no children and she is in her late 70s. Graham, in is 80s, has just started to suffer with Dementia, however this has coincided with the lockdown before either of them could get support. They both like to do independent things in their lives, and Rita said recently ‘I would still like to have my own life’, which summarises the challenges for many carers.
Support for Men (and Women)
During COVID19 CM2M has been liaising with her sister, who in her 80s can only provide limited help, and her niece. Rita and Graham worked in hosiery for many years and had many friends. CM2M will provide Graham a buddy so they both can continue to see their friends.
