My Dad and I both lived with and cared for my beautiful Mam who sadly died last year on 09/08/2021.
I wondered if anyone might know of any grief support groups, specifically aimed at adult sons who have cared for their mother who lived with dementia and has sadly died?
42% of unpaid carers are male - 2.5 million men in the UK, but there is a distinct lack of male representation in carers groups. Because support groups can be predominantly female, men often feel they can’t openly share their experiences or get the advice that they need.
Are there any former carers here that have provided full time care for a parent? Specifically a mother that lived with dementia?
