    Regardless of whether she's too old to provide you with care unfortunately, you will only be entitled to claim this if she claims a qualifying benefit such as DLA mid/high rate care or Attendance Allowance. Or she's registered blind.

    This is because if you live with someone, you can't claim SDP.

    That's not exactly correct, sorry. You can live with someone and claim SDP, it just depends on your circumstances and who you live with. People is shared housing claim SDP without any problems.
