My 85 year old mother who lives in sheltered accommodation had a memory assessment this week and is awaiting a brain scan and presumably a further appt from the GP. She lives in sheltered acommodation and although I visit her 3 times a week to take her out and get her shopping I am concerned she doesn't have a visitor in between times and I am increasingly concerned about her. Where do I go to find a carer to visit her, if only socially once a day for a short period? I presume if she gets a diagnosis then we will be told about options but these things could take weeks and I think she needs a visitor sooner. Of course, the fact that she thinks she is fine and that any care visitor would be "under foot" is another issue but I am new to the system. Do I just find a private care organisation and ask them for a meeting? How do I know they are reputable? Thanks.
