Ambulant disabled - has anyone claimed this for an Alzheimer's sufferer?

I was advised when phoning up today to book some leisure tickets to take my mother somewhere that potentially I could claim that she was 'ambulant disabled' due to the fact that she is not able to go to events etc alone and needs a full time carer in attendance with her - which is absolutely the case.
Has anyone tried to claim this status at all, and if so was it successful?
Many thanks,

Hi Peanutsmum,
Yes, the advice is correct although I've not heard the phrase "ambulant disabled" before. In a previous life I sometimes taught groups of students with learning difficulties and, if we went out, the carers came free.

If I were you, I'd pick where to go then phone up and ask.:)

I think this is another one where it's different all over the country, our council have a Passport to Leisure scheme which has various categories, one of which is for someone who need accompanying to events, places or activities, there are various discounts but it usually means that you pay for one ticket and two of you can go. It's good for theater, swimming, cinema, etc. so well worth looking into for your mother.

I hope you have some lovely jaunts with lots of fun, with best wishes from Jo
