Deductions for non dependants

I am on UC  (LCWRA) and Pip (enhanced for both elements), I have my daughter living with me and my mum and dad want to come and stay with us for a while to help look after me as I am bed bound. Would I have any deductions from my UC including housing element due to this, and how long can they stay before being classed as living here? They own their own home and would have most of their belongings still there.
