Joanne’s story – care that keeps Mum in her dancing shoes

Joanne and her mum, Patricia, have been with Elder since 2017. Patricia has mild dementia, but that doesn’t stop her enjoying life. We had a chat with Joanne about what difference a live-in carer has made to both their lives.

Unusually, Patricia’s care is a bit of a family affair. Her primary carer is Rose, and her secondary carer is often Rose’s daughter, Esther.
