Hi everyone, my father was diagnosed with dementia a few years ago. It's not been easy and it's all a learning curve for me. I am the only child so he has no one else to turn to so in effect, I'm his carer 24/7. Mum died 4 years ago which hasn't helped. What I would like to ask is about allowances that you can get like carers allowance, attendance allowance and discounted council tax but it's not easy as there are so many questions to answer. Apart from what I have already mentioned which I'm looking into is there anything else that I or my father would be entitled too please. Grateful for your advice.
