Can I claim Carers Allowance?
Good morning. I am currently looking after my elderly Father. He was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis in December. He is on Oxygen for 15 hours a day. Although I no longer live with him (I recently got married) I am visiting him everyday to make sure he is ok. I do his weekly shop, his laundry and general household chores. I work full time so my day is a 14 hour shift. Looking after my Dad is of the most paramount of importance and I wouldn't do anything otherwise. He recently asked me to claim for carers allowance but looking on google I am confused as to where to look. I've been on to the government website which for to say a little unhelpful. Asking for advice and suggestions. Many thanks in advance
