Allison Keating answers your queries about life & relationships

Question: My father left my mother for a younger woman when my siblings and I were in our late teens. We are now middle-aged and my father is quite elderly. His partner is about 10 years older than us. He has recently developed dementia and she doesn’t want to look after him and has told us she wants to arrange for him to go into a home. He is perfectly capable of living at home with help but as she lives with him, she is refusing that option.
