    Hi and welcome I don’t really know who else you could contact other than welfare rights or her go or maybe Alzheimer’s society 

    hope other members can help

    Hi @jan47 and thanks for joining our community.  I'm glad you found us so we can offer support.  

    This must be a really tough time for you.  Just to clarify, does your sister live alone?  And, has she not had a needs assessment done by social services?  That really would be the first point of call I'd recommend for getting her help.  

    If you can give us a bit more information, I'm sure together our members can advise you too.

    Hi @jan47 - I'm sorry about the difficult time this must be, & the worry it must cause. I do hope you can get something sorted with social services. I wonder if her GP could help at the moment. Do yo know how long your brother will be in hospital?

    Hello and welcome to the community @jan47 :) Have you been able to take a look at the comments above? I'm sure this must be a very stressful time for you, but there should be help out there so that your sister can be supported.

    Social services are hopeless at the best of times IMO.

    But I hope you get the support you desperately need :)
