Not just pushing a wheelchair

Tony Warren

Any one of us could become a carer at any time, without warning. Being a carer is, as Tony discovers, about more than just pushing a wheelchair. He cares for his wife, Lydia, who is disabled, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 52 weeks a year. It's a job with no pay and no holidays but Tony does it willingly and lovingly and, after 30 years, it's just who he is.
