Watford Dementia Support: Government Links and Information

The two most critical links from the UK Government website are forAttendance Allowance andCarer’s Allowance. These means-tested benefits can help with the cost of dementia care.

  • Attendance Allowance is a benefit or pension top-up for anyone with a disability or long-term condition.
  • Carer’s Allowance supports anyone caring for people over 35 hours per week.

To claim or enquire about a claim, contact theDepartment of Work and Pensions. They may also be able to advise on council tax reductions or subsidies.

You may need a “needs test” from your local authority to complete any paperwork for allowances or further benefits. Scroll to our local contacts section for links.
