I would speak to their GP and ask the GP where to start. They should put you in touch with the appropriate department of your parents' local social services who will help you.

If there is a carers centre near you, they will be able to help you understand what is available locally, and how to get it for your parents. They may also know which care homes locally would be suitable for your dad
