"Mum can go out for lunch without worrying"

Just started using this service which offers support for my dad who has dementia. This is a great service which allows my mum to get much needed respite from caring for my dad full-time. This can take a lot out of my mum and during the time the social worker is there she can have time to herself to go out for lunch without worrying.
This service gives my mum a break and although a bit apprehensive at first about leaving my dad he is fine and well looked after by his worker. My mum looks forward to the time she has to herself. Although this service is for my dad due to him having dementia it also is for the family especially mum as caring for someone with dementia is 24/7 and she needs looked after too.
