You mean Carers allowance?

As far as I know payment for carers who live with the person they look after are direct.

Have a look at this as it may help. http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/MoneyTaxAndBenefits/BenefitsTaxCreditsAndOtherSupport/Caringforsomeone/DG_10018705

You need to contact the council and ask the question. There are no details on that web site about it.

You can in certain circumstances, for example, if someone has mental health issues it is not always best if a stranger is employed to be their personal assistant. It is much better for someone who they know well and trust, someone who perhaps lives with them. It is best to check with the council who supplies the direct payment.

It depends who the person is. If it's a parent/step parent then no. Direct payments are made to a responsible adult to look after the child so as to give the parents a break and nobody will pay someone to look after their own child. If it's an adult brother/sister then maybe you could. Let us know how you get on.

I did it for quite sometime for my wife who has ME and many other ailments. We got direct payments from our County Council and her Care Manager agreed that the care would be shared between me and a care agency.

 

I worked at the time and it was quite complicated paying the tax but not insurmountable. I managed to do most of the intimate care as my wife did not want someone else doing it and the other carers helped with other things like food,drink, bit of cleaning, keeping her company whilst I was at work.

 

You have to have a very good, flexible care manager.

 

Good Luck

IF I HAVE BEEN ANY HELP AT ALL OR JUST MADE YOU LAUGH AT MY STUPIDITY PLEASE MARK MY PERFORMANCE!

 

ALSO REMEMBER TO DONATE. EVERY LITTLE HELPS AND THE FORUMS ARE FOR YOU!;)
