Read through this page which describes the types of short-term care available to help you decide which may be of most use. Close to the bottom you can click to apply for an online assessment, which will take you through a few questions that will determine your situation and what you need help with, and help to put you in contact with a face-to-face assessor should you be eligible for the services.
