My mother gets the lower level of attendance allowance. To apply for the higher level she have to have during the night? (We live several miles apart). She has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and, as well as the days I see her, sort out her medication, take her to clinics, do her shopping and all the obvious help a 92 year old might need, I am currently ringing her each evening and morning to make sure she is OK. At one point this was because she was beginning to lose track of which day it was, what might happen that day, etc. Now she has been diagnosed and put on medication she is managing much better but of course this may not last. I can’t find anywhere that is explicit about what her needs would have to be to apply for the higher amount.

Yes, the higher rate is awarded to those who need care day and night.

No worries! I know for DLA, it's when the household shuts down for the night. I think I read somewhere about it being between 11pm & 7am. Well, I remember that it is for DLA.

 

There is some more information about AA here
