Patricia Gogay

Patricia Gogay was born in 1942. Her working life included a nurse in training, laboratory technician and croupier. Finally, as a mature student, she studied for two years at college to qualify as a social worker and probation officer.

By her mid-thirties, Patricia had built her own houseboat, could change a fuse and was a happily confirmed spinster. Then she met Ken.

Working together, they built a 42-foot yacht and sailed it around the world for fifteen years. Shortly after returning to England, Ken suffered a catastrophic stroke. For the next fifteen years, Patricia cared for him at home as he made a prognosis-defying recovery. She could not have managed dependent care alone. It was made possible by the immaculate help and support they both received from his carers.
