Problems getting hold of information is a common problem for relatives. You may want to discuss your experiences of this or find out how other relatives have managed this by talking to the REACT GROUP. You could share ideas on these and share or gain any helpful information you or others may have.
Alternatively you might want to discuss your experiences with the REACT Supporter. They can listen to your experiences and help you think about which bits of REACT might be most helpful to go to next.
