I have had lupus for over 30 years and never claimed anything, worked full time until two years ago, and I know I was very lucky to be able to do so. However, since retiring I am finding there are increasing many things I cant do. Driving can be very difficult with painful hands and shoulders, cant carry shopping, housework takes forever as I have to keep stopping for a rest. Cant climb in and out of the bath, so we paid to have a shower put in instead, cost a fortune but well worth it for me, we are not rich by any means hubby still works. I am wondering if I will need further changes at home, can I claim some help?? or do we need to spend our little savings.
