Change In Circumstances (Sponsor)
Posted 13 November 2012 - 02:24 PM
My grandparents were granted indefinite leave to remain in 2008 and I was the sponsor. At the time they needed care as they were elderly and had no-one to do this for them in their country of residence.
Since they received ILR both grandparents have seen a significant decline in Health. Most drastically so for gran who had a stroke in Aug 2011 and became totally paralysed on her right hand side (arms/legs/face).
Grandma now requires 24/7 care and specialist equipment to support her (tube feed, toileting, bathing, mobility, social etc.)
Additionally, granddad has had heart problems, diagnosed with irregular heartbeat and also being assessed for memory loss and mental health issues.
My mother, who is 58 and diabetic is their primary carer on her own, assisted occasionally by dad when he finishes work.
To add to this, my circumstances have changed drastically where I no longer earn even half of what I did at the time of sponsoring them and I definitely have no chance of financing their care.
As you can imagine, it's a really testing time and I need to do something to change things.
I would really appreciate advice on how to deal with this situation and the questions below.
Are they eligible for any state support?
Do I need to inform UKBA of the change of circumstances to access support?
How does my change in earnings and ability to support as their primary sponsor affect things?

Go to your local doctor and get the necessary referrals for them.

Yes we told the truth at the time. Does it really not matter that they were granted ILR but with me as a sponsor to undertake caring for them? Will we not be required to re-look at their status first as my job has changed?
Sorry to be a pain, I do agree completely with what you're saying, I just know how I will need some clarification and legal reference during the referral and assessment process.
