“I wouldn’t have cared if I lived or died,” said Ken, 92.
Ken was heartbroken when his wife Ann died after over 60 years of marriage.
Sadly, Ann had developed dementia and Ken was caring for her at home. But in January, Ken was in a car accident and had to spend several months in hospital.
Injuries to his neck and ankle meant he couldn’t walk or move around as well as he used to.
Then, while he was in hospital, Ann passed away. Ken returned alone to the home they once shared.
“It was a very, very sad time,” he said. “I couldn’t see the point.”
“But that was when I met this bright chap, Terry.”
