Hi, I don't know if this is something you would be interested in at all, but I cared for my Nan for over 2 years with a form of dementia and I wrote 2 poems in an attempt to explain to friends and family members (including her own daughter!) what it was like for her and me. I'd be happy for them to be shared, and credited to me. I can email them across if it is something you would be interested in including or sharing. Arianne Dickens
