kelly Posted July 16, 2009 Share Posted July 16, 2009 Hi, does anybody know if there is an equivalent of the carers allowance payable in France, and what it is called, my husband became disabled in France and receives the APA because he is over 65, this pays for a woman to come and clean and keep an eye on him for 3 hours a week while I can go out, I could have more help but don't really need it and can manage. He is classed as 80% disabled and is on AGGIR 2, whatever that means. I don't understand how they work out what we are entitled to, I had to give details of our income and savings, somebody did come and visit to see what kind of help I would need when he came home from hospital, but since we didn't know just how bad he would be it was difficult to say what we needed, never mind the fact I had no idea what kind of help was out there, if I knew then what I know now I would have saved myself both money and stress. We are managing with the practicalities, but it would be nice to have a bit of extra money just to pay for extras. Any sort of info would be appreciated Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
