    Ask around for recommendations, for companies that do live in care, many will do short term contracts, 2-12 weeks, sometimes 1 carer, sometime a small team on a rotating basis.

    Hi Lake Como-well you do sound very down-not at all surprising. Does your Mum have any input from a SW or CPN? They could be a good source of info. Also have you thought about respite care in a CH for your Mum-perhaps a few days, or a week? Then you would have a thorough rest.

    Take care
