The Carer

If you have ever cared for someone you love through an illness and felt lonely, isolated and lost, you will be especially interested in this episode of Wyse Women.

It features Tiggy Walker who is married to the BBC Radio 2 Presenter Johnnie Walker. In 2003 and just a few months into their marriage, Johnny became seriously ill with cancer and Tiggy gave up everything to care for him. Then ten years later the roles reversed when Tiggy became ill with cancer and Johnny had to care for her.

In this podcast (which contains strong language) Tiggy shares her wisdom about what she learned about being a carer from both perspectives.
