    Hello there @bettyboob73 and thanks for reaching out, I'm sorry to hear you're struggling to find help for respite care for your two sons. 

    Can I ask how old they are, and if you have any ongoing support from your local authority for their care?

    You will need to look for people in the area near where you live. Someone else's recommendations may not be anywhere near you. You LA maybe able to give you some recommendations. However based on my own personal experience, it may not be that easy to find someone suitable for the hours you need. You maybe better off going with a care agency.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Thanks for explaining @bettyboob73 that's helpful to know.

    You might find Scope's page on respite care useful to have a look at, although it focusses on short breaks it might signpost helpful places to reach out to for ongoing support.
