Attendance allowance advice - should I claim

rsx Member Posts: 69 Courageous
I am looking at if m grandma would be eligible for attendance allowance, she has arthritis, bad varicose veins and a few other health conditions, she's suffers from pain alot in her neck, shoulders, arms and legs. I'm wondering if she would be eligible as she doesn't have a carer, she needs help with things and if she doesn't ask for help and does them herself she will be in pain. I just wanted to hear other people's experience of claiming it and if it would be worth applying for her
