I AM 67 and my wife suffers from schizoaffective disorder with depression.

I am disgusted at the lack of support from family and communuity services.

Recently, I went on holiday for a week and my wife had someone calling every day to see that she was OK and taking her medication.

That’s fine, but from the day I returned my wife hasn’t even seen her.

As neither of us have any close relatives it is very difficultt for me to cope on my own.

I have all the shopping, cooking and housework to do on my own.

Unfortunately, I have very little money to live on, otherwise I would have a very good case for negligence and lack of support in the community.
