You may be able to claim attendance allowance depending whether you need help for personal care. The claim forms can be confusing. I would advise you to seek legal advice.
You are not able to claim any benefit for this but you may be entitled to some care in your own home like meals on wheals. Your GP may be able to refer you to social services who will be able to make an assessment of your care needs. This can be a complicated and slow process you should seek legal advice to find out all your legal rights.
If you are not able to cope in your own home you may be entitled to have carers to assist you with a shower or bath and/or help you get dressed. Your GP can refer you to social services. I would advise you to seek legal advice if you have any doubts because this area of law can be complicated and it is better to be aware of your legal rights before you or your GP contact social services. This way you will know what your right are and you will know if what you are being told is correct or not.
If Social Services has carried out an assessment and decided that you do not need to amount of care that you used to have you can challenge this decision. This can be a complicated and slow procedure. You should seek legal advice on this.
