France - social workers or ?

Jump to last reply

I also posted this in the Lounge but hoping some folks in France can help:

FIL (whom I also posted about on the iPhones in France topic) lives in Paris with his wife. He had a heart attack last fall and as a result, is having some short-term memory issues. I suspect his wife is overwhelmed as his full-time and only caregiver; we will be there next weekend and should better be able to assess the situation but DH has spoken with her twice in the last couple of days and said she sounds exhausted. Any relief we can offer her will be just for a few days.

I don't know if she doesn't feel comfortable reaching out for help or doesn't know where to (she is French and lived in France for most of her life so I expect she is familiar with the French medical system) or doesn't think they can afford it or maybe something else altogether. But I was hoping someone out there in Fodorville might be able to give me some guidance or suggestions so that we can possibly steer her in the right direction to find some help. Are there social workers or something similar that one would talk to in this situation?
