is wife still eligible for carers benefit??

All about money
Hi all
Quick question.
My wife is the main carer and receives carers allowance for my mum but other members of the family help out too.
My mum does not live with us, she lives on her own.
Recently mum has become virtually immobile and can just manage to get to the cammode unaided. She cannot dress, wash or prepare meals.

Mum has just come out of hospital and the distric nurse (or I think thats what she was) came round and said additional carers will be provided twice a day.

What I want to know is how is that going to effect my wifes carers allowance or my mums disabilty benefits. mum is obviously on the higher rate benefits
Hi biggurs
Im afraid that benefits can be a mine-field. The best people to contact is the carersuk help-line, they are very good at questions about benefits.
Cheers buddy
