Bravely going where no man (person) has gone before

Brother and sister plus father with dementia. Doesn’t sound a laugh a minute. This is a subject that is very close to the hearts of many of the 50-plus. At one level having to deal with the practicalities of ageing and difficult parents at another, staring at one’s own future? The Savages (the surname not their predisposition) is a new film on release (or just about to be released) in the US. Anybody seen the film –comments?

In a minor way the UK's longest running radio soap opera, The Archers, has been covering a similar subject. All a bit "too close to the bone". Dick Stroud
