I am new to the forum (today)
I am looking for help and advice in claiming benefits for MS and Mascular degeneration.
My wife was diagnosed with progressive MS around six months ago and is really struggling getting around,plus very regular migraines.
My mother has been diagnosed as partially sighted due to Mascular degeneration.
She is struggling with day to day tasks.
I work full time and have done for nearly forty years and am finding it very difficult to help in both situations.My health is beginning to suffer as I am constantly tired and stressed.
I feel I need to be available for longer periods of time to help, shopping cleaning etc.
I only have six years to go before I can retire,but this seems a lifetime away, and my family need me available now.
Is it possible that I could claim different sorts of benefits to help me either reduce my working hours or care full time?
Thanks to anyone that can help.It will be much appreciated.
