    Hi @debs_123, You don't say how old you are but assuming you're over 60 Age concern run a befriending service and if you tell them your circumstances I'm sure they'll be able to point you in the right direction for other help. Also the council do home assessments on people especially as your needs have changed but you may already have help indoors. It might also be worth investigating local charities for the disabled to see what help is out there.
