hi all - Carers UK Forum

hi all

Tell us a bit about yourself here.
First post ,
Just thought I’d introduce myself
I’m Fahad and am a Carer for my girlfriend who has hyper mobility and fibromyalgia among other things but she is now at the stage that she needs care/help.
We have finally got carers allowance to help us along the way , it’s all new to us so very unsure of everything at the moment.
Thanks
Hi and welcome. Do read around on this site, not just the forum, as there is a lot of information. You have to make sure she is claiming the highest rate of things like PIP for her condition (do not 'underplay' how bad she is - you have to describe her 'worst' days, not her best days!) (FM can vary in intensity over every day, I know).

Wishing you all the best in a tricky situation....kind regards, Jenny
