Hello, Steven. I am not clear on precisely what you need but you clearly need much more help than you are getting. Has there been a recent Social Services assessment. How old are you and your wife?

I think your best next step would be to phone the carers' helpline on 0808 808 7777 and talk it over with the helpers there, who can probably best advise.

May I also suggest that you change your user name to make it less identifiable? The new name will appear on all your existing posts as well as any new ones which you may make; yes keep in touch.
