My mother is in her mid seventies and was this week almost totally blinded because of undiagnosed GCA.
What makes my mothers case so upsetting is the fact she is a fiercy independent widow. she is very active, fit and healthy and works tirelessly for the charitable good of others primarily voluntary care for disabled and the aged. Her hobbies are cross stitch and needlecraft and a love of gardening.
I would really appreciate hearing from anyone who has been in a similar situation and and share what we as family carers can expect and advice to help her regain a quality of life.
