    Hi Rebecca101,

    Sorry to hear about the difficulties your grandparents are having.
    Have they had a care assessment by the local authority?
    If you would like to talk about this in more detail and look at other sources of financial help, please get in touch with me at the helpline. We can also help find them some local advice and support.

    Kind regards
