Victor became a Carer for his wife for a considerable number of years, as well as giving support to other Carers and raising the profile on older Carers within his community. He got in touch with DCA and explained it was such a relief to speak to someone who would listen to him and understood what he was going through.

Victor advises: "If you are a carer struggling through these unprecedented times and don’t know who to talk to, please don’t do this alone. There is help out there and people who understand your struggles – so ask for help!”
