hi i dont if i am doing this right lol. My problem is my mother is 81 and i am 41 i have been looking after her for years on my own with no help. I have been in touch with social services on several occassions who i have found don't help.I have asked for a carers assessment but haven't been given one. Don't wont to moan but I need help I am a single parent and have brought my children up soley on my own and with mother being this way I am nearly at cracking point. I take her everywhere and do everything running two houses. (see I am moaning sorry). I have had to give up work and have no life of my own. My problem is she smokes and has done so all her life. With this smoking rule coming out she can't go into a home she can't have anyone from the council or it's services come to her because she has no smoke free room her house is open plan. Don't know where to go for help.
