    Hi. My elderly relative receives AA at the higher rate but he now has carers coming in 4 times daily as he is unable to manage on his own anymore. Will this affect his AA and does he have to inform the benefits agency?

    Not at all. Only if he moved to a care home permanently and wasn't self-funding.
