This couple are both disabled and in their 90’s but living independently in their own home. Mr B called in to ask for some help from Age Concern. The support needed was with home cleaning and carers to come in and support.
Both were eligible for Attendance Allowance so completing a home visit we wrote applications with Mr and Mrs B. Mr B was awarded a higher rate of £83.20 each week and Mrs B was awarded the lower rate of £55.10 each week which provided an additional £7144.80 a year to pay for their care needs.
Feedback was “Your service is a delight”.
