What am i eligible for please?

Faz Member Posts: 3 Listener
If I receive a basic PIP and have a PA for 11hrs a week and 3hr carer for bathing. Can I still receive further carer allowance for my family member who also has to stay over at my house to look after me please..? As I also require further support which is not provided please..?
I have had adaptations done in house and on 24 tablets a day. I am in two crutches and have had collapsed many times due to being insulin dependant for over 32years. My life changed after a freaky accident and having multiple fractures leading to cardiac falure in the last 3yrs. I also have a social worker from the Integrated Neighbourhood team.

Please can someone advice what I am eligible for?
I have always been a tax payer and so has other 4 members of immediate family. 

Many thanks.
