What to do?

Share information, support and advice on all aspects of caring.
Thank you. It's really helpful to know it's not just us!

Do you know of anyone who gets carers before 7:30am? It seems to be really hard to get anyone - especially in London.
I used to get carers for mum around 7am (Canterbury, Kent) but was hit and miss. I empathize with your lack of sleep. Kind regards Nicholas x
Our agency (East Anglia) started at 7 am. (As it happens, our preference was for a later morning slot, but I know the 7 am was true because at least once they came then.)
Unfortunately, it appears that almeshouse residents don't have the same rights as renters elsewhere.

From what I gathered when we had carers in Greater London, the early morning slots can be in high demand by those with morning hospital appointments or those clients who work or go to school.
