carer s package is over

All about money
hi I am heartbroken to say the least! I am a full time carer of my hubby. Well sadly we have both got arthritis and I am getting over a hip replacement! 10weeks post op! But still feel bruised! Hubby has duel sensory loss of hearing a sight! He has had a care package each day for the last couple of months as I was in hospital! But now its back to normal! Yet we are both on walking sticks!! Talk about the blind leading the blind! ! Sorry to rant! I am utterly heartbroken! The social services said that we could have some one to help maybe 3 mornings to help with creaming my Hubby's legs as he has excema! But this will not happen! So muggins has to struggle!!

Hi,
It would not hurt you to apply for the care benefit, or it's replacement. The thing is are you still in employment? If you are it could be a problem, but if not with the help from your doctor or nurse. You may be lucky. I wish you well.
Bye,
Bernard.
