I recently lost my partner of 34 years i was his full-time carer .sadly he had parkinsons and lewy body dementia. I was always against puttiing him a nursing home but i had a heart attack in August 22 so had to make the hard decision to him going into a nursing home i was with him all the way .his dementia got worse and sadly his health detereated. I spent the night at the Nursing home and next moring i went home to freshen up and had a quick coffee with some friends when i got a phone call to sayhehadpassed away .
My world come crashing down. Although i had an idea things were not going to improve the shock i can explain .we were lucky to have many supportive friends. 130 attended the funeral. But now i a, on my own and trying to ce but i just keep braking down as i cant belive he willnotwalk through the front door again i feel lost ,my routine has been broken .and feel
No light at the end of the tunnel .
Appligise for sounding like war & peace .

Hi Will54

I’m so sorry to hear about your partner. A lot of people find the time after the funeral very difficult, and the loss of routine and the breaking down will be very familiar to people in this community. You are not alone.

I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I wanted to share a few Sue Ryder resources with you that might be helpful.

The community is here for you, so keep reaching out.
Take good care
