Have you applied to your local authority or carers groups in your area. Some carers groups administer NHS funding for carers respite breaks etc.

You could also contact you Local Citizens advice.

If you are on low income or receive non/means tested benefits. There are many UK charities who will help fund such items.

A while ago I found a website called something like “Spa Breaks” with special offers.

Has alternative care been arranged for your husband that you are happy about, so you can relax at the spa?

Hello,I will always make arrangements for my hubby while I go off.I wouldn’t dream of leaving him with out help.Regards Amanda h

BB didn’t mean that as a criticism. She meant has someone else eg social services or continuing healthcare organised it for you because they’re supposed to.

I would strongly recommend you to have a saltwater hot tub at home, it’s like having a spa at home.

This is an old thread, I am locking it for the usual reasons.
