Does anybody have recent experience of social services /care direct in the uk? I live alone, only family believes its psychological.I am really struggling.now tipped over or tipping over into very severe me.I am now at point or getting to it where will have no choice but to ask them for help.but I am wary/scared.asked for help couple of years ago, refused.one of the reasons being they felt I needed encouragement not help. (Am much worse now) and there has been mmuch about re-enablement from social services etc also had home helps , a long time ago, and my experience wasn't good. Have difficulty writing so may not be able to write again for a while.but does anybody have or had recent experience of social services/care direct etc. thanks.
