Live in/overnight carer needed in stockport

nur786 Community member Posts: 1 Listener
Hello everyone! Glad to have found this community. Recently moved to Stockport, Manchester and am struggling to find a carer for my brother who has epilepsy/autism and has high care needs. Looking for a live in or overnight carer who can support my mum in caring for him. Let me know if you have any leads on where to look. Thanks!

    Hi and welcome to the community 

    I would try social services for a list of approved carers in the area or put an ad on Facebook local selling site

    @nur786 Hello and a warm welcome from me to our online community, how are you doing today?

    Could I firstly ask, how old is your brother? Also, has he had a needs assessment carried out and your mum a carers assessment? I'd recommend both of these if not, to ensure both your brother and mum's needs are fully identified and met. 

    I'd second the suggestions to contact Stockport local authority social services and for specialist advice, you can also contact the following organisations:
    Please let us know how you get on and all the best to your family with the relocation.
