Tell us a bit about yourself here.
Please help me, my parents are both elderly and my mum has just been diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease. My dad will now be her main carer, although she is not too bad at the moment what is our first step and is he able to apply for a carers allowance yet or does she have to be completely incapacitated.
