My comments are concerning care in West Yorkshire and particularly in my area - Calderdale. Here there are no homes for Alzheimer's patients apart from a EMI unit, particularly if the patient requires nursing care also. As I have previously stated on this forum, my father is a sufferer for the last 6 years (possibly longer) and in the last six months my mother and I have been trying to arrange, if somewhat reluctantly, some respite care or perhaps something more permanent. Unluckily, we live in Calderdale where there is really nothing available so we are left to struggle (and struggle we do) at home. Is anyone else from Calderdale and do they have any experiences from this part of the country? Here you can pay up to £940 a week for care - why can afford that? Perhaps my mother will have to sell her house, the proceeds of that should last 2 years, if that.
