My husband has early onset dementia.  He’s 62 and is really beginning to struggle.  I work 4 days a week and am becoming increasingly worried about leaving him alone on a daily basis, just doing nothing, moving paperwork around and staring into space.  He doesn’t need any personal care at the moment.  He does however need a companion, someone to prepare food, a daily-friend to talk to and do things with locally – for a few hours, a few days a week.  If you think you can help, please contact Claire on 077525 98587


Why struggle on your own? Need help with your computer, install software, learn/improve surfing the net, word processing, spreadsheets, database, power point presentations, etc … Help is just a phone call away: 7638 4249
