Thanks for letting me join.

I have been a full time carer for my wife for about 10 years, she has had 3 strokes one major which has left her with limited mobility with round the clock care. I would like to ask a question for support, in September I will be getting my state pension, I know my carers alowence will stop but am I entitled to any other support. Thanks for your help.

Hi Kenneth & welcome

You could do a benefits calculation.

Do you apply for a carers grant.
