    Welcome to the community @Nannysmurf24

    It must be a really worrying time for you, We have lots of information about becoming disabled that might help you and your husband - it has things like benefits, social care, getting out and about and home adaptions.

    The community here is a warm and friendly place where you can chat, ask questions and get to know others and so I hope you enjoy it here, jump in and get involved and let us know if you have any questions. :)
