👋🏾 I'm TessSmith...mummy and carer

TessSmith Community member Posts: 1 Listener
Hi my 4 year old son has eczema herpeticum and was recently awarded DLA. He has the highest care component as it is very severe and I spend 4-6 hours a day bathing creaming and clothing him, administering medication as well as unlimited time changing sheets, cleaning, wrapping bandages when necessary, carrying him everywhere, comforting and calming him as he also has behavioural issues due to his anxiety and constant pain and scratching. I was wondering what other help he was entitled to as this is all new to me. Also can I apply for a shower to be fitted in my rented home through the council?
Thanks in advance
