He stated, "I am her full-time carer and I won't let anyone mess up with her. For me the real person is still there. That person I love is still there every minute of everyday and that is my life. It's unfortunate that she fogets things, well, don't we all? I suppose her condition is one of like a permanent hangover for her. It gets worse and worse, bits of the brain store less and less memory and then suddenly some bits completely vanish".
