Hi, my name is RobnMel!
I have a mentally disabled older brother and also mentally disabled younger sister. my mum had looked after them both there whole life until 2 years ago where she became terminally ill and passed away. I have looked after them both for the last two years which to my amazement I cannot get my head around the financial side of things. Robert and Marilyn both initially went under a care package which was horrific so I was told about direct payments which I have since Oct 2014 been claiming. However the financial outlay that my brother has to pay is mind blowing. I am trying so hard but seem to have one door after another slammed in my face desperate please help
