I am a carer for my husband who has Alzheimer’s.  I am currently unemployed but am trying to find part-time work to fit in with my husband’s needs.  Can anyone tell me what the criteria is for me to be eligible to receive carer’s allowance?  I have not applied so far but my husband receives lower level Attendance Allowance.  

Thank you if you can help.
