It was great to find Older Living Matters. Other people have the same problems. Who knew? OLM Forum


From the Forum: One of the biggest problems about old age battles is feeling as though you're on your own.

I was talking to one elderly lady who had so many problems over the years.

Her husband had dementia. She had to organise care and then find a good care home, organise the fees, apply for benefits and she had no idea what she was doing.

Finding this website made her feel as though she wasn't alone - that other people had the same problems.

She laughed at the page about sewing names into clothes you take to a care home. It was a relief to know her husband wasn't the only one whose things were stolen.
