My mil has her pip and ESA assessment today. Apparently she went last year with my brother in law who said she scored zero and they told her to go to work. She has FTD and AD (diagnosed end of last year) together and has learnt to use her long term memory to have plausible conversations. She does repeat the same things over and over but apart from that an outsider would think she is ok. She is 56 but looks 46 and when the man from benefits office came he was talking to her as if she was a carer for someone with dementia as he could believe she had it until we put him straight. My mil struggles day to day with finances, cooking, new things such as getting a bus to a bigger city or different location none of which will be picked up in a medical assessment. I am worried that this assessment only focusses on physical health and therefore will not pick up her problem. Any suggestions? My bil is taking her today.
