What do two hours mean to you? It’s an insignificant amount of time for some, but to the Allen family it’s the difference between having a social life, running a business and enjoying a good quality of life.

Carer Marian O’Flynn spends two hours per day in their home in Knocklong, Limerick, helping to mind Bridget Allen who recently turned 100. She assists with Bridget’s personal care while Frank, who is Bridget’s son, tends to the farm and his wife Ann runs her business.
