Diana’s story – Carers Week 2019

Diana's story

The day centre gives me a much-needed break. It gives you a breather. Kamila and Denise at Humphry Repton House are amazing.

Diana Anthony, 69, who lives in Henbury, has cared for her husband, 71, since his diagnosis with dementia six years ago.

She benefits from the day centre service at Humphry Repton House in Brentry, which provides a safe and supportive social environment, where adults with dementia and physical care needs can be cared for, whilst providing day-time respite for carers.

She said: “When someone you care for needs support 24/7 and you see you husband or your partner going downhill, it’s very hard. The day centre gives me a much-needed break. It gives you a breather. Kamila and Denise at Humphry Repton House are amazing. They always bring a smile to his face.”
