Careers allowance & careers element

hi ,   My dad recently suffered from a stroke and is claiming PIP he got his award though the other day and is entitled to enhanced rate on both sections.     My mum his his primary career and receives universal credit and looking to claim as a Carer for him , but after looking online I see there is a couple of caters benefits she might be entitled to ,  the obvious carers allowance but I’ve also seen of a carers element of universal credit , is she only entitled to the element or is she entitled to both if she qualifies ?   We are a little unsure and would be grateful for any points in the right direction.
