Hi Bob, she certainly won't loose any pip if you did move in eventually as that's none means tested, ESA is different if she's in the support group without any premiums that she won't loose anything however if she's on the income related ESA then if you do live together they will count your income a...
Emily, you're doing brilliantly, as carers we have busy lives so don't feel you have to reply back, as long as the information is helping you both that's all that matters. As for gardening Lisa also enjoys that but she can't do too much & has to supervised, at our holiday home she loves doing the fl...
Hi Bob, do you think you'll eventually move in with your girlfriend? which benefits are you worried about?. She sounds a very lucky person to have you looking after her, like I said before there is support out there for when you're working, it depends what you both want at the end of the day relatio...
Hi Bob, my wife has severe epilepsy with regular seizures and like you I also work. There is support out there if her epilepsy is severe but like anything nobody tells you.

Hi Tony, i'd just like to add I agree with everything other members have said, you have your own life, there's nothing wrong in seeing your sister and helping out now and again but it sounds like you need ask for support for your sister (if nobody else will). My wife has severe epilepsy and requires...
I'm really sorry this has happen to your husband, my wife has uncontrolled complex partial epilepsy like your husband, I can't for the life of me understand why people would want to do this to him.
I hope he recovers very soon
