Crowded Isolation and Loneliness

Crowded Isolation and Loneliness

Family carers speak about their experience of caring for someone with dementia. 

What do we mean by Crowded Isolation? We wanted carers to explain they way they really feel in their day-to-day lives. Life is busy being a carer. You will be meeting with different healthcare professionals and may have care workers coming in and out of the house. You are surrounded but can feel so alone.
