Thank you Bowlingbun...I hope it was helpful information.
If your mum is the sole beneficiary of the will ask her to do a deed of variation to the will leaving the property directly to you. You may need a solicitor to do this. This negates the need to live for 7 years to remove it from her estate for inheritance tax purposes. If the estate is over the 325k...
Dear Fluffy, I have been in a very similar situation to you, I am an only child and my dad died just over five years ago. Since then my currently 96 year mum has been in complete decline. She went from running the house and looking after my dad to sitting in her armchair doing nothing. I took on car...
Thanks for your advice Karma...the care company have been so very good in getting a carer mum knows each time.They have also been in touch with her GP re the problem and are hoping to get mental health services involved. To be honest with you I have run out of fight at the moment after struggling wi...

She is ok with her regular three or four different carers but when the agency sends a new person she threatens them and se...
Thanks Mrs A, I really don’t think the dwp know what they are doing as I don’t know why they are the questioning this period and I also have moved away and told them I am not caring for my mum now. They treat me now as an irregular earner, which I am (was) and have asked me for my income for August/...
I told the dwp about a break in caring for my mum back in February this year, she had been in hospital for some of the time but not all, I just couldn’t care for her for 35 hours per week for about 8 weeks. I then claimed again from when I was able to resume 35 hours a week. The dwp decided to pay m...
