We have recently returned to live in the UK from Africa as my husband can no longer work having been diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's earlier in the year. We have savings, but need to find a house to buy and sign on with a doctor, or the other way around? I will need to get a job, but reckon this will need to be home based as not sure I could leave my husband alone for the day regularly. Also not sure what I would do as have been a housewife for the last 30 years. It would take a pretty special person to employ me on a blank CV! My husband can drive but obviously can't here until he has been assessed, for which we need a doctor... and a specialist? Then comes the matter of pensions, I will be eligible, my husband not, benefits - I have no idea. Do I need to talk to Department of Work and Pensions first? Buying a house is a big deal (everyone says don't rush into it) but I think on balance we need that pretty soon to start everything else off. If anyone can unpick this and suggest which to sort out first I would be very grateful.
