Generations Apart - Baby Boomers: Derek

Derek cares for his wife, Jean, who has Alzheimer’s Disease. They've been married for over four decades, but over the last few years Jean hasn't really known who he is. Derek was able to retire two years ago to become Jean's carer, when his battle to get independent living allowance for her eventually succeeded. Even though caring for his wife gets harder as the disease progresses, Derek struggles with the idea of putting Jean into a home.
