My mother has been diagnosed with alzheimers. Plus she was immobile even before here partial hip replacement on 25th July. She is now short of money and I need to know that she is getting everything to which she is entitled.

    Hi Thomas,

    Welcome to the community. We can help you with this. We also have a benefits calculator on the website so it might be worth running it or contact me at the helpline and I can talk through it all with you. I'm out of the office on Wed 25th but back on Thursday so either give me a call or send me an email helpline@scope.org.uk.
    I would need to know your mother's age, current income, care needs, housing status. You'll need all of this to run the online benefits calculator http://www.scope.org.uk/support/disabled-people/calculate-benefits
    You can also read about the various benefits on the same page to get an introduction to the help available.

    Kind regards
