Couple care for man with dementia in their home

A couple who have opened up their home to support a man with dementia have been talking about their experiences.

Bernie and Chris Cave, of Netherhall, Leicester, are Shared Lives carers. Such carers share their home, family and community life with an adult who needs care or support to help them live well.

The couple spoke about their experiences as Leicester City Council announced it is looking to recruit 30 more such carers in the next 12 months.
