I wonder if anyone has any advice tips re filling in this , Mum is meeting someone Friday to help? My OH has just gone through it making document notes to answer how he thinks should play it.
Basically mum get no help from anyone, no doubt dad will be self funding from his work pension etc, I'm trying to help but work , brothers work too.
Mum is already in meds to help her and is burning out. She needs carers to come in and take dad out, locally one organisation is free (charity based) but limited, onto day care , respite and........

I have not worded it well, hard to write what I mean . Hope you understand .
Thanks .

K is the form for PIP?

I was told to fill it in using the worst behaviours & needs. Give lots of detail.

Kjn; I did my own. First of all, there was the initial claim made over the phone via DWP. If it is PIP; then just make sure your worst struggles are listed. I've kept a copy of my assessment form if you should need further help. PM me.

It's an assessment of needs for carer form , questions asking ..
Do friends of relatives help you
Is your house clean and tidy
What kind of things do you wish you could do again, what would you like to achieve

All seemingly seeing if she is coping.
