Meeting an additional household

My wife and I have a son at 1 and a daughter at 4. Our daughter, Holly, has severe epilepsy and requires continual care and support. For the last 2 months, this has been exhausting as we have had no support from family or her nursery. Her daily life revolves around medication, monitoring for seizures and specially made meals as part of her diet treatment. We fully accept the lockdown guidance and have complied fully throughout. However, if we could have support from one other household then life would be immeasurably better. For example, if we could use one set of grandparents and we only interacted with each other then I foresee little risk.

Why the contribution is important

My wife and I, along with our children, are struggling both emotionally and physically due to the requirement for us to both carry out all the support Holly requires. In addition, my wife is a teacher and has continued to work as have I in an IT role. As a result, there is no respite for the children or ourselves. If we could meet one additional household, that could assist with meal preparation and monitoring the children it would make life much easier for all involved.
