Husband gets DLA - query about being his carer?
I currently work as a senior support worker. My husband has dual sensory impairments. He is very partially sighted and has profound hearing loss. He suffered a TUA last year and after being admitted to hospital with pnuemonia was diagnosed with COPD. He is of retirement age and receives his pension and DLA. He is now getting to the point where he needs me to be at home to care for him and maintain his safety. I am getting really concerned as to how we would cope financially and what benefits we would be entitled to. Can any one advise me please. We rent our house if that makes any difference. Thankyou.
