Need Some Advice Please...

Hi All......
I wonder if you could help. My dad has asked me to become his registered carer. I'm more than happy to do this but I wonder if you could tell me if I meet the criteria. He is 90 years old, living alone, gets various benefits etc. I claim Contribution based ESA but have just started a part time job this week (only 16 hrs per week) but my dads needs come first.
Could you please tell me what I would be entitled to as his full time carer?? Thanks so much.

Hi Val, welcome to the forum. Can I ask what help dad needs? Are you prepared to do more and more until he dies, maybe for the next 15 years?
