"We were flailing around looking after my dad. I wish I’d known that as a carer you can be invisible. In the latter part if someone had said they could come over - even if just for an hour - to give us a break, I would have thought how wonderful!” - Katy

"I read out a letter to a family from a man who had died. His daughter hadn’t wanted to talk to him before he died so he wrote it down. It was the most difficult thing I've ever done. She was crying, I was crying, but I promised him I’d do it.” Nurse Sally
