GOV.UK: Attendance Allowance

You could get Attendance Allowance to help with personal care because you’re physically or mentally disabled and you’re aged 65 or over.

It’s paid at 2 different rates and how much you get depends on the level of care that you need because of your disability.

The other benefits you get can increase if you get Attendance Allowance.
