A single mother from Leicester who has cared for her severely disabled son for 18 years has been calling for more help from the city council.
Patricia Brown claims that her health is now suffering because of a lack of suitable care for her son Davrick.
Leicester City Council
said it is working to help the family.
In their statement they said: "While we can't comment on the individual circumstances of this case, we can confirm that we are continuing to work with Mrs Brown and her son to agree an appropriate support package."
However Patricia claims an agreed care package has been withdrawn.
BBC Leicester's Eleanor Garnier spoke to Patricia, and Greg Drodz from
CLASP Carers Centre
who said the council are under pressure to cut services.
