No respite

My grandad cares for my grandma who lives with Alzheimer's and vascular dementia. Usually he is supported by family on a near-daily basis, with cooking, cleaning and respite. Since over-70s were first advised to socially distance and family members have been discouraged from visiting, providing this additional support has become increasingly challenging for the family. This has increased the burden on grandad and reduced the level of time he gets to invest in maintaining his own health.
