A carer is someone who looks after and supports some who are unable to manage day-to-day tasks by themselves. Many carers are paid a wage, however there are many people who have suffered a head injury who are being assisted and supported by relatives, friends and neighbours for no payment.
There are various state benefits which you may be entitled to make an application for if you are caring for someone with a head injury. Such benefits include a carer’s allowance, direct payments, pension credit, council tax benefits and other council services such a meal on wheels. Of course there is certain criteria each individual has to meet before accessing these benefits however it is worth investigating any open to you.
The social welfare department at Osbornes can work with and advice you on whether you can access these services.
