Has anyone any experience of this, either for themselves or for a relative?
I have been looking into this during this week. The finances are horrifying, and our savings will vanish speedily; but, that aside, there are many considerations....
What it might be like to have a stranger living in the house? Whether we would cope with that or get on? etc. etc.
But the advantages are very clear: consistent care instead of several carers coming in and out (and me having to show them where everything is etc. over and over again!); freedom for me to pop in and out when I need to and not have to arrange odd bits of care here and there; cooking, laundry, housework all done as well as the care.
We currently have 3 care visits a day plus extra care when I have to go out. And I do all the housework, laundry etc. - which is a struggle on crutches - I am happy to do it obviously, but if this knee problem continues it is very hard to do. I could get all this for not a huge great deal more money.
