Trying to find temporary Carer!!!

I wondered if there was anyone hear from the York area who knows of any carers that would do temporary care for a hour a day for a week ( needs to start 6th June) , running out of time And have rung round half of York ( still no joy!) so far it has been like this, one of them said I was too young , elderly care only) then a handful say they don't cover my area , others that they only give out more permanent care and not just for a week , so I am pulling my hair out here,

Any bright ideas would be welcome

Hi there

As you have specified a place in your post, it would be a good idea for you to lock your post.

Many people on the forum will only reply to locked posts. I am just suggesting this for your internet safety and that of anyone who replies to you.

Wishing you less pain and more peace

Hi , blueMermaid, how do I now lock this post?


Hi. I typed a reply to you earlier, but it obviously hasn't sent. I do apologise.

To lock your post look at the bottom of your post and find the "follow post" button. Click that. You'll get a drop down menu and one of the options will be edit.

Click on edit, scroll down to the bottom and you need to click on "only followers of this community". Click that and then click "post".

Give me a shout if you need help.

There are instructions permanently pinned to the forum in blue which are hopefully easy to understand.

Lu xx

Hi electricjaws

I have pasted you a link to the FMA UK support group page, as I am sure many of the members will have carers who may be able to help? It cannot hurt to ask:

I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck in finding a carer.

All my hopes and dreams for you
