Hi all. My husband injured himself at work 4 years ago and has had several spinal surgeries and now chronic nerve pain.
I work casually at the moment when my mum is able to care for the kids but much of my time is caring for him as he is basically bed ridden.
Im not sure if I'm eligible but I'm considering applying for a carers payment. How does this work with family assistance though?
I'll call Centrelink in the morning but just wondered if anyone else might be in the same boat?
