The role of carer for an aged person is often unexpected if not unwelcome but it is increasingly a common one.
The worst case scenario is a sudden emergency after which nothing ever returns to “normal”. For the better prepared, it still changes life more than you would ever have imagined and frequently brings with it responsibilities which keep you wakeful at night and exhausted by day.

Where should the aged person best live? What care do they need and who should provide it? Should the family home be sold now or later? What do you need to know and what can you do to make this troubling time easier?
