I expect that you are getting the standard generic support workers that Social Services provide as they are cheap....Up north there is an organisation called Neuro Partners - they have a lot of local authority contracts within which they provide a neurological assessment within which they would provide a neuro support worker and if the situation is necessary build in the appropriate amount of personal care....they obviously are more expensive than 'generic' support workers however the long term benefits far outweigh what Social Services currently provide.......
