Finding Carers for University
Hi, I'm Fran I have triplegic CP and am going to university in September 2020, hopefully an hour away from home. I will need help showering, dressing and likely cooking. I’ve researched different care agencies but am feeling very overwhelmed and abandoned by my council. Any care agency recommendations from fellow disabled people? I know I need to apply for DSA for other disability-related costs. I still have not been given a needs-based assessment for care, despite promises from a social worker that she would arrange one with my Local authority council before 2020. I'm on track with grades, offers and other preparations but feel that finding the right carers is the main thing holding me back. Any tips? All advice is very much appreciated.
