    Hi Everyone
    I’m new on here but would like to know if anyone on here could recommend a live in carer for an elderly lady (89 years old) with what looks now to be the onset of dementia, in Lancashire please. We are at crisis point with her care as no professional seems to care! and I cannot stay with her much longer as I have serious health problems of my own but I cannot leave her on her own because she is at risk, I don't know what to do with this situation and it seems no body is listening to me.

    Hi i have a similar problem with my dad cannot get private carers! Not live in just for couple of hours as dads got dementia I've now turned to ss social services for help as going have nervous breakdown soon full time carer no help
    Even if not self funded they can do urgent carer assesment care assesment for the care and carer they can help find private carers
    Also care quality commission have a website with cares agency that have the care rating etc
