Claiming carers allowance

I have Parkinson’s disease and claim Full PIP . My 2 daughters and husband  have looked into claiming carers allowance but my 2 daughters both have part time 18hr jobs and my husband works full time which brings them all over the financial threshold for claiming carers allowance. However they all assist me at different times around their jobs and my do jobs for me that I am unable to do whilst my husband supports me in the evening. My daughters insist that they do not want payment but while they are supporting me I no they will not look for extra hours st Work and I would like to financially thank them. My question is can I apply for the carers allowance and use it for support , taxis etc as I need to or is it just the carer who can apply . Thank you
