Hi I've just registered, so here goes! My Dad was diagnosed with Alzheimers 2 years ago & Mum is his only Carer. They both live in South Yorkshire and unfortunately none us live near enough to give direct support, so everything is done at long distance. We are trying to get some support for Mum from Social Services via a Needs Assessment. I've read loads of information about them, but wondered if anyone had experienced one direct and could give me the benefit of their experience before we book an assessment. Thanks, looking forward to receiving lots of informative replies.
