    I have just found this page on Age UK regarding issues with care, at the very bottom of the page is their contact number which is open everyday until 7pm. Worth a try. If not, come back to us and we will try to find another solution :)

    Hello @lock32 Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Sorry what has happened. Something to look at is The British Red Cross website. They do care and support in the home.

    You can self refer yourself. Either that or though your GP. Have a look .

    Hope that helps.

    Please take care
