Christmas is notoriously a busy time in everyone’s calendar from buying and wrapping the gifts to the everyday chores of going to work or school, homework or housework . Can you imagine if you had the responsibility of caring for someone who couldn’t manage without you, trying to juggle their health & wellbeing with their own and then adding the Christmas rush on top?
