I'm not sure how to look after my wife since her stroke | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: I AM not sure how best to look after my lovely wife, who has had a massive stroke.

We’ve been married for nearly 20 years, She is 48 and I’m a man of 51.

She’s had such a tough time with long stints in hospital and care homes but we now want her at home.

When she has been at home for short periods because of her medical needs, the carers we’ve been sent aren’t experienced enough and they do not provide night cover.

We aren’t rich so I won’t be able to pay for a lot of care, but I just want her with me.
