John and Carol's story: Taking a break from caring

30 June 2017 Stories of hope

When John was diagnosed with Chronic Airway Limitation, he was given only 18 months to live. 20 years later, his devoted wife Carol is still looking after him in their home. Both John and Carol are grateful for the support they receive from Wesley Carer Services. Respite care ensures that Carol gets help with the most physically demanding aspects of John’s care and that she is able to take much needed breaks in order to cope with her ongoing carer responsibilities.
