Life writes all sorts of scenarios. Sometimes tragic, when a loved one ceases to be independent as a result of illness or accident within a few moments. And sometimes the existing carer of an elderly or disabled person cannot continue to look after his or her loved one, either permanently or temporarily - because the person's health is deteriorating, he or she has to move away or renovate the flat. There are also times when loneliness gets in the way and all that is needed is the presence of another person.
