Bowlingbun My Mum has always looked after me and is a great Mum she had me very young bless her, it's just been me and her. She has Bipolar disorder and gets in catatonic like states too. So she has high care needs. Her own mothers not very supportive so I didn't want her to be left at her mercy. I love her lots so it's not a burden. Her sister helps sometimes if I need to get things done.

She is lucky to have you.

Hi just joined and was wondering if anyone can help. I m 24 and gave up work a year and half ago to look after my Mother who has severe mental health problems. She requires day and night care. I made an application for carers allowance and universal credit. I get about £130 a month universal credit and £66 a week carers allowance. Somebody told me about carers element in universal credit.
I'm not sure what this is . Is this added to universal credit or is it a top up. I cant seem to find anyone who knows. Thanks in advance
