Hi Lesley
All these may be arranged by social services at your carers assessment but I'm afraid it remains quite a postcode lottery which area you are in.
Have you seen the turn 2us web site- I think there is a charity -from memory but maybe wrong St eonards? that gives grants to carers for breaks if you meet certain criteria.

ah here it is

Hi Lesley , my nane is Liz. I have recently been on a rest bite weekend , I went to my GP and explained just how low I am feeling , and she said something about a "prescription ". After our conversation, someone from the Carerstrust got in contact with me to speak about this prescription that the GP had referred , and I explained when and what times that I would like for someone to sit with my husband for a while each day while I was gone. They will help you in anyway that they can just to make things easier for you. I would strongly recommend that you go to see your GP and asked about this "prescription " thing. See how you get on. It will be nice if you would let me know how you get on.
