Advice for a newbie
Hello. I would like to enquire about what financial help is available to my parents. They are both retired and about 6 weeks or so ago my father suffered a terrible stroke. He is in a rehabilitation hospital at present but the doctors estimate he will need full time care when he comes home. I wondered how soon I should start the proceedings of applying for benefits on their behalf since my mum struggles with anything like this. I would like to know what I should apply for and when please. Thanks
