Hi Orange, I have thought about bringing a carer with me and it is a posibility. However, the downside is it would be very expensive, because as well as the two weeks wages, I would have to pay for their return flight, hotel and food. If I rented an apartment then I would need a bigger one with an extra bedroom.
Hi Dolly, Thank you very much for passing my querry on. I have also left an answerphone message for a special needs carer that I found on the web and am waiting to hear back.
It is getting really cold in London, have had my heating on constantly tonight. I wish I was back there - I felt really at home when I visited and found everyone very friendly.
Thanks for your help.
