Do you not get the age pension @tisme?
Given your own diagnosis I am wondering if you might get more help by having a post on the lived experience side? You might more forum members who might know of the kinds of supports you are needing. There are a few that have a diagnosis and also care for family members.

If your health is failing @tisme, perhaps trying again for DSP might be an option. Speaking to your GP in the first instance might be helpful.
Perhaps give a group like Wellways a call, they might be able to provide a support worker through their partners in recovery program who can help you with your application.
Have you got any help with NDIS application for your daughter?
