The care company often cancel visits or offer phone support, which doesn't help with physical issues

Good morning,
I am an amputee  in a wheelchair with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder.. last time I was released from a section I was offered support in the community 10 hours a week! Lovely!!

Only travel is most of the time I'm it puts me in more of a bad mood to have it it than not. The staff themselves are great... But the company running the business SJ takes on more clients without the staff to support them...


So I had a a visit planned today, it was cancelled, I was offered phone support which doesn't help me with any physical issues, like getting food!! And it's the the third time this week already! Weekend they have no cover for me yet.

Nightmare!
