TALKING CARE? HAVE YOUR SAY! NEED AN ANSWER?

Home and Residential care advice

People who have previously had to arrange care are often eager to share their knowledge and experience with those who are starting their journey.

There is nothing more reassuring than speaking to someone who has “been through it before” and it can be a great comfort knowing you are not alone at this potentially stressful time.

Have you had to arrange care before? Can you offer any advice or share your knowledge with those who need it?

If you need help or simply wish to tell your story, please don’t hesitate to post below. Remember, people want to listen and are keen to help if they can.

  • Fiercely Independent

    Hi,

    Mum is fiercely independent, but now that she is in her twilight years (nearly 90) she needs some help. How do I go about arranging care for her (in her own home) when she doesn't like the idea of 'needing a carer'?

    In anticipation of your reply

    Many thanks in advance

    Some care providers are happy to provide a carer for domestic help so try introducing a carer that way, maybe once or twice a week to do some of the heavier house cleaning. If a good relationship is built up you can work from there
