Relative with MS
I am really after some advice for my mother as her husband has recently been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. He has been struggling for 18 months or so and is in his 70's as is my mother. They are both finding it increasingly harder to deal with day to day tasks and aren't getting any support. What is the best thing to do? Are they entitled to any benefits, even though they have private pensions? I really want to help them but not sure what to advise?
