What financial help on discharge from NHS hospital?

Posted on June 22, 2012 at 8:12 3 Comments

My wife,who has severe mobility limitations (brain tumour), is on a catheter and has other related serious problems is being discharged home in a few weeks. She needs two people to look after her thus I will need a paid, probably live-in,carer to help me.

I had heard that, even if our savings level means that we get no financial assistance from the Council or DWP, she is entitled to non-means tested caring help for the first 4-6 weeks after discharge.

Can anyone tell me…
