I have used your wonderful resources in the past for myself.
OH's social worker suggested we claim PIP for him. We had a home visit from DWP person who completed the claim form and we provided her with quite a lot of his hospital letters, and used your guide to answer the questions. The medical went ok but I didn't feel the assessor took account of the effects of fatigue and cognitive problems he suffers. Anyway , much to our surprise , he has been awarded lower rate care for 10 years! The areas he scored in weren't quite what we thought he'd get but we're not complaining, especially knowing we don't have to worry about this for a long time. Thanks again.

Hello fan54

So pleased to hear of your good news. It's always good to know that the website and guides are so useful.

It's also good to know that the length of the award is so good, Maybe someone is realising that health issues don;t go away in a matter of months, and that the stress caused by frequent re-assessment is extremely detrimental to someone who is already ill!!

Good luck for the future :)

Thanks for your comments and kind support . being disabled can be such a lonely business without all the negative press etc.
