Hi, I've been trying to find out if my Mother would be entitled to a carer.
Shes almost housebound now with huge difficulties walking, dressing and basic hygiene but my Father does most of the assisting her.
My fathers now struggling as he's 80 and Mums getting more demanding.
My main problem is, they're very old school and although my Mum suffers greatly, she rarely sees a doctor.

As i work part time, I'd like to help them out a bit with housework, shopping and maybe pushing my mum around in her wheelchair so she gets out.

Would I be able to get carers allowance and if so, how do i go about it? will it go against us that Mums had very little medical attention?

Really appreciate any advice or pointers to where I get information :T
The first time we said hello, was the first time we said goodbye. As the angels took your tiny hand and flew you to the sky-you forever left us breathless. RIP my beautiful granddaughter :(
