I am currently trying to apply again for attendance allowance as I now think we qualify for the higher rate for my Nan. This might sound a silly question but I thought if anyone would know the answer someone here would! Obviously most of us are having to fill out these forms on behalf of someone else, so I'd just like to know what person to write the form in? So far I am writing it as though I'm my Mum on behalf of my Nan, and I have answered each section beginning. "My Mother requires...." and by using the term "she". I then got to the end where it asks for the person who knows you best to fill in how your illness effects you, to complete a section and realised that I will simply be writing everything I've already written again (as my Mum is the person who knows my Nan best). I went back and changed it all to first person, but it simply sounds wrong as it's clear (to me anyway) that my Nan is NOT writing this. Any suggestions?
