Q: Tell us about you! I am an Orthopaedic surgeon, with my own work and family away from my mother. We had been worried about care for my mother who is in her 80s and fiercely independent, determined to stay in her own house, but becoming increasingly muddled. We did try carers living in, but my mother hated them, they often did a few days and there was lack of continuity or they didn’t understand my mother’s wishes (and they were really expensive). Q: How has sharing been?
