I have been caring for my husband for the last 8 years and I cannot cope any longer. I have been suppressing things for a while but am at the end of my tether And I don't know where to turn. I have tried a weeks respite with a live in carer and it didn't go well. I am now faced with three days with no one to help me and I just don't think I can manage. My husband is unable to sit still for a moment and is constantly agitated. He barely recognised me and he needs near constant reassurance and it is driving me potty. I live in the north west of England and don't know where to turn to get emergency help if only for an hour or two. Any recommendations or helplines to call greatly appreciated. I feel desperate and I just wish I could come up for air.
