Sue, 68, became a carer for her husband, Dave, after he had a stroke. He's since been diagnosed with dementia. Sue also has Parkinson's disease.
Sue and Dave used to live a happy, adventurous life. Sue worked as a midwife and district nurse in Cornwall while Dave was a carpenter and cared for their sons.
The couple also converted their house so they could foster vulnerable mothers and babies. "Our days were full," says Sue. "We had lots of friends, Dave surfed, we had barbeques on the beach... I can hardly remember that time now."
When their own children grew up, Dave and Sue became practicing Christians and started travelling. "On our first aid trip to Romania, we filled our Ford Fiesta up with second-hand clothes and just started driving," says Sue. "Our friends couldn't believe it!"
