I am a carer for my mum who is 60 and had PD for around 10 years. So put it bluntly her progression is fast, and symptoms are awful. She requires 24 hour care, and most days can barely lift a glass of water to her mouth and more.
I’ve been able to manage this year and have been working from home due to covid. So can take regular breaks from the laptop to help her.
With going back to work in December imminent - I am STRONGLY considering, and have pretty much decided to leave work at the end of December to care for my mum.
I was wondering if anyone has any experiance with what benefits I’d be claiming and what my ‘carers’ wage might be? We have a large mortage to pay, so need to get this all figured out.
- In process of applying for early retirement for mum. Been off work for over a year, so sick pay has now been removed.
- I earn around £1050 a month with my current job.
- Only mum and I in the house so no additional incomes.
Any advice pleeeease
