Adult physical disabilities or ill-health
Under 1 minute read
If a parent or carer is disabled, or experiencing physical ill-health, they may feel they need some extra support to help care for their child. They may be entitled to help from the adult social care or children’s services departments of their local council. Or even both. It will depend on the precise situation.
Parents and carers needing information and advice about adult social care law and services should seek advice from a specialist organisation. This is sometimes called community care law. See the Disability (including learning disability) and the Mental health sections of our Useful links page for some relevant organisations.
