I am Fran a 50 something singleton. I work in Scotland and my elderly and ill parents live back in Lancashire. I am currently racking my brains, what is left of them, to see how I can spend more time with them as their carer and keep some of my job if possible…mortgage needed to be paid and so on…so I found you!
As a starting question, would me claiming carers allowance affect their income? they have state and occupational pensions and both have high rate attendance allowance, they are in their late 80’s…

Tell us a bit more about your parents. Disability? Do they own or rent their home? Have over £46,000 in savings? Do you have any brothers and sisters?
