A week in the life of a Baldock carer: Monday diary entry

A WOMAN whose life was changed forever when her husband was injured in a car accident more than a decade ago is providing a daily insight into her life as a carer. Here’s her entry for Monday.


Back to alarm wake up, tea and medication in bed as usual, then usual routine to get husband up and ready for the day.

After breakfast I made flasks and lunch before I went off to Headway. I was there till mid-afternoon and had to finalise trip for carers tomorrow to Van Hage for a treat.

Went to friends to check on flat and water plants etc.
