"I care for my mother with complex medical conditions that can be quite difficult to balance at times, she also has a
form of dementia. I am a member of Wrexham Division of St John Ambulance Brigade which gives me useful knowledge and expertise in my caring role. It is so easy to forget about your own needs, and focus on the person you care. You there for that person 24/7 365 days a year. It's important to take time out for yourself - but this is easier said than done! I've found time to start back at the gym, which I hope will improve my physical fitness and mental health in order to help me care."
