Pete is using hospice services and Margaret cares for him at home.
Pete says it has been a difficult process to come to terms with the physical change from being very fit to being unwell.
“There’s nothing I can do about it except try and make it into a journey.”
Margaret says that as a carer, it’s important to take it one day at a time, build memories together, and take care of yourself as well.
“You can’t isolate yourself through something like this, you’ve got to make an effort to surround yourself with people who are positive and supportive and kind and understanding.”
