Past carers

Being a carer for someone can take over your life. When circumstances change there can be a real feeling of loss.

Life goes on

When things change your own life can be turned upside down.

The person you care for may move into a residential care home, or they may reach the end of their natural life.

While you were in your caring role many friends may have disappeared because they didn't know what to say or do. Often family can fade away for similar reasons. So it's just you and the person you care for.

It can be overwhelming to pick up your own life again. If you feel lonely and isolated it can add to the grief and loss.
