I don't think that over 65 ,if drawing a pension you can have carers allowance.
Do you have AA for your D?
It is a minefield, I pay for morning shower calls at a reduced rate because I came to them through Social services.
I was urged by the SW to fill in an Assessment form, I didn't do it for about 5 months when I needed more help.
I sent the forms off on July 24th.
I never heard anything or got an acknowledgement so I told a duty SW when I was enquiring about another matter and he said he would pursue it.
That afternoon I had a phone call from the Finance dept to say it had been allocated an officer to deal with it that day!!!
Lost ,forgotten, whatever, it would take a week to be dealt with.
That was September 20th.
No further news, I have told the new SW all this and asked her to sort it.
Nothing so far.
I want to bang my head against a wall.
If I cannot get any reduction in what I pay, I just want to be told.
The situation is compounded by my needing full time care for my H and I want the financial side clarifying before that time comes.
