Hello Everyone
Iíve been caring for my husband now for nearly a year. However as I work part time I feel now that we do need help.( Iím becoming very tired and very emotional)
Social services have already been out and spoke to my husband and myself with regards to getting a care package. We are now awaiting an offer of care of which we will have to contribute towards.
I have recently asked about respite care the social worker said that a Carers Assessment would need to be completed in order to evidence why respite would be required. They would need to come and visit again to complete documentation.
Is this normal ? Does a Carer not automatically get respite care ?
Thank you in advance for your replies x
