Hi, I currently get esa & dla: mobility-higher rate, care-lower rate.I broke my ankle on 3rd August due to head injuries sustained in the car crash.I had one of my many falls ! I have had to come and live with my parents because I am now unable to walk so need help with everything.My husband had to return to his full time job after the1st week as he doesnt get paid.I am currently sleeping on a blow-up bed downstairs & use a camode.My mum has to give me a full body wash every day (embarrassing at 46).I will be like this for at least another 3 weeks.I wonder if I'll be able to claim for higher rate care for approximately 3-4 months ?
