Frank cares for his wife and has been coming to our men’s cookery classes in Mill Hill for the last two years.

‘Marion used to be able to cook for me  until she developed Alzheimer’s. I’m her carer and she’s not a well lady.

I’ve always been interested in cooking although I’ve never had the ability and now my wife needs support I thought I’d come to Age UK Barnet’s cookery class for men.

It if wasn’t for this I’d be useless at home. I can now do my share of the cooking at home and take the weight off my wife’s shoulders.

It also gives me a break from caring which can be very hard at times.

I enjoy chatting with the guys and arguing about politics and picking up some kitchen skills at the same time.

In fact these classes are the greatest thing that has happened to me in years’
