During Learning Disability Week we will have Suzette from Carers UK here from Tuesday 15 to Friday 18 June.

Suzette can help with questions about being a carer, and particularly about the challenges carers face when it comes to benefits and finances.

Please post any questions below. Please bear in mind that Suzette won't be here until Tuesday 15 June.

If you want to know about Carers UK have a look at their website here - carersuk.org/

Best wishes

Hi SarahMy daughter is living in a respite centre at this current time with a view to moving to a supported living placement later in the year.

I currently deal with her finances and would appreciate if Suzette could advise on the best way forward when she moves into supported living.

Thank you from Gill

Suzette, there is also another post from a carer here - healthunlocked.com/mencap/p...

I have replied, but if you have any general advice about where carers can find support that would be super.

Thanks

Sarah

Hello

Here is another question asking about being a carer once you retire - healthunlocked.com/mencap/p...

Suzette, there are already quite a few responses to this but please reply if you have anything more to add. It would be great if you have any advice/information for older carers.

Many thanks

Sarah
