"We were extremely lucky when my Dad had his vascular dementia. Mum was looking after him. Then she had a fall and she couldn't look after him. We were told to contact through Crossroads Care. They actually care for the carers.

It's a charity. So I can't speak highly enough about Crossroads because I think they're fantastic and I think they are country-wide in one form or another."
