Caregiver respite

My mother has been an informal caregiver for my father with a brain injury for more than 30 years. Last week his situation worsened, making him almost completely dependent on care (for the time being). Home care is now available for my father, but he cannot be home alone, which means my mother has to care almost non-stop. She needs to be able to go away for a day/part of the day every now and then (in consultation) without having to worry about my father. In addition, she might also like to get in touch with other informal caregivers or simply share her story over a cup of coffee every now and then. I am therefore looking for someone who can take over from my mother at home every now and then, and possibly be a buddy for her.
