Struggling to look after ourselves
Hi, can any one help please. I receive DLA higher rate motability and lower rate at home, retired on I’ll health a few years ago ,my husband used to help, but he has passed away now, My daughter lives with me ,on ESA support and higher rate care PIP. Has mobility problems as well, as fibromyalgia.We are struggling to look after ourselves, some days we have trouble getting meals .My daughter is only 41 and I’m 64. We cannot get attendance allowance as we are both under 65. And looking into careers allowance, we are not sure if we can get that. Normally a friend or relation pops in if we both need help.we have a cleaner, shoppings is delivered most of the time. Can we claim anything?
