hi, I’m new to this forum and hoping someone has been in my position and will have suggestions for me.
Last May I was diagnosed with OA in my hands, primarily the end digits of all my fingers. I have continued to work as a community carer since. However, the last few weeks have been very painful and I am now struggling to complete all visits in the time allocated. I am moving house, 200 miles, to be nearer my children, but I am concerned about my chances of employment. I’d like to leave care work, but I need to do something that pays reasonably well. I am fairly sure I won’t qualify for any benefits. I’m prepared to do any work that my OA will allow, but it may take some time to find suitable work and I assume I won’t qualify for Universal Credit. Any ideas?
