@Carerofpotsie Hi Carerofpotsie I think it all depends upon how long they are in a psych unit. If the person you care for is in for a certain period of time the magistrate then gets involved as regards to who looks after the carer's payments, disability allowance etc. I could be wrong here and I am sounding a bit vague but I do know it depends upon the time the person is in hospital for. Check with centrelink to make sure. Cheers. gp
