Hi Does having carers allowance affect the caree's financial assessment for help with care services? It says on the letter about carer's allowance does this only apply if he is claiming carer's allowance for someone else or for the carer's allowance i receive for looking after him?

If you receive Carer's Allowance it can sometimes affect certain benefits paid to the person you care for

have a read of the Carers UK factsheet on Carers allowance here -

Thanks SusieQ Have looked at the link and also phoned up the Financial Department and they said No it was not included, spoke to three people Phew relief would have been in financial difficulty if they did :)
