Good morning. You should able to claim the standard Carer's Allowance if you have no other income. Mum herself should be entitled to Attendance Allowance if she is not claiming this already. There is a very good website to use which is called 'what am I entitled to?' where you can put in the details for Mum and then again for yourself and it will calculate your entitlements.

It is https://www.entitledto.co.uk

Kind regards
