Of course he should be getting Attendance Allowance!  My aged Ps had it for years while they were still at home and carers were coming in during the day - they still got it in the Lovely Home - it helps them pay for their care there! 

There's a possibility that you're also entitled to Carer's Allowance.

Details here https://www.gov.uk/attendance-allowance

Lyn, does he have a hospital-type bed with a back that raises?  Does it also 'bend in the middle'?  If so, when you raise the back so he's propped up, bend the bed in the middle so his knees are raised a bit.  That way he won't slide down.  We learned that from the carers with Pa, and now Ma. 

He does have an air-mattress to help prevent pressure sores doesn't he?
