I have had to find carehomes for my Nanna, my Dad and my Step-mother. Often this involves visiting the homes themselves. They are all so different. Some plush, some sad. What experiences have you had? How were/are loved ones cared for at home?

Please email your poems to me. Monday: Home Carers, Tuesday: Care Homes Wednesday: How Do I Want To Be Cared For, Or Not Thursday: How I Care? Friday: Who Will Be Choosing My Carehome Saturday: ‘A day in the life of a loved one in a care home’ Sunday: Why Do We Care?
