I wonder if anyone could give me some advice please...
My mum has been steadily becoming more and more unwell for the last 4 years. She can no longer move her head side to side or backwards so now she is only able to walk looking down at the floor. Her muscles are wasting away , her neck is crooked now and eating food can result in choking she also can't lift her arms above her head so struggles to wash and dress. Everything in the house is too high for her to get or to see and she's lost over 5 stone so now weighs about 6 stone.
She had to leave her job about 3 years ago due to ill health , which the doctors put down to depression!!! She claimed incapacity benefit I think it was and then after a period was nudged back to work. She could no longer do her business manager job so gad to take a job doing activities with dementia patients. She's really really struggling to continue doing thus , she gets so cold and us unable to get warm and has tremors/spasms in her neck where it tries to pull her head back which is heartbreaking to watch her in so much pain. She's really nig well enough to work but is worried that she won't be entitled to PIP or anything else. We're not really sure what she might be entitled to or how to go about it. She's in a total financial mess, she on,y works 3 dates a week on minimum pay and if doesn't cover the mortgage and has no money for food.
She's used up all her savings on chiro help and supplementing her income. Any advice anyone has will be really helpful
