My grandma has dementia and my mum cares for her full time. On more than one occasion now, she has struggled to get respite care so that my parents can go away for the weekend. There is a home nearby, but when they make enquiries, they insist they can't book her in too far in advance and they have to wait to see if there is space. They also are reluctant to take her for a weekend, saying they can do a week or two weeks at a time. Surely there must be a simpler, more efficient way to organise some respite care? IT's making it impossible for my parents to plan anything.
