Hi, I'm new here.
My stepfather-in-law has severe COPD and I'm trying to gain as much info for them as possible.
They have been recently seen by occupational health and been told about some of the things they can have (wheelchair, stairlift, etc). They are in receipt of benefits (income support...don't know what others, mother-in-law is named carer of stepfather-in-law...not sure if she is claiming a carer's allowance). Are there any other benefits we could be looking at?
Also, to get an emergency alarm, they need a plug socket and telephone line socket next to each other. This currently is not the situation, so will need the telephone line moving....can they claim for this as they are in receipt of benefits? And if so, who do they contact (i.e. social welfare?).
Thanks for your help
