Mobility activity - PIP 1 month 1 day ago #252476

I have re read the guidance ahead of my assessment tomorrow and just have one more question. For familiar journeys it says this descriptor can be satisfied if the person can’t deal with unexpected changes such as roadworks or changes to platforms even if the journey is familiar to them. However, to navigate around such obstacles then I’m disoriented and lost if I’m on a different side of the road or pavement. But then, by that definition if I was a different route because of the obstacles the journey wouldn’t then be familiar as I couldn’t get myself back on the route? Is that understanding correct,

Your understanding of obstacles is correct but this remains a familiar route. do not introduce the idea that it has become an unfamiliar one as you will be talking yourself out of points.
