"my wife's homecare"

About: City Hospital campus / Oncology Nottingham West

(as a carer),

my wife has Parkinson's, breast cancer and ME and is totally dependent on help to meet all her needs. Since the time I first contacted the local authority to request some help at home I have been very pleasantly surprised with all the help I have received, both in the care package, the equipment and the community services. I have found that the nurses, the physios and the OT's have unfailingly helpful, kind and sympathetic, as has my GP at Church Street Medical centre. I have also found the Carers Service very helpful. I would particularly like to mention Mrs A. Attwell, the OT, who has gone out of her way to help my wife. The help we get goes above and beyond.
My wife also visits Nottingham city hospital for her breast cancer treatment and they're very good too, no doubt about it.

It would be helpful to have more information about domiciliary visits.
