A 90-year-old carer from Leicestershire is concerned about what will happen to his disabled son when he is no longer able to support him.
Alf Winter lives in sheltered housing in Ashby-de-la-Zouch with 55-year-old Keith, who has cerebral palsy.
The pensioner is one of an estimated 77,000 carers over the age of 65 who live in the East Midlands.
"There’s nobody else to do it. It’s just perseverance – I get on and do it," said Mr Winter.
