put any information you have regarding OT, physio, any special equipment that helps you to cope.
examples are: grab rails in the shower
double bannisters so that you can haul yourself upstairs
a bath board to help you get in and out of the bath.
If you have not yet been seen by an Occupational Therapist, ask GP to refer you.
they will walk you through your house asking you to point out where you don’t feel safe.
2 days later they sent local authority to come and instal grab rails.
also talk about how fatigue affects you and your ability to prepare meals.
I noticed one day that just showering and washing/drying my hair made me need to get back in bed.
If you have previously been on DLA the move to PIP doesn’t mean that you are no longer disabled but you have to spell it out for the assessors. So if you are entitled to it you should fight for it.
look at the Benefits and Work site before completing the form, there is a charge but it is well worth it.
the key words on the PIP form are “safely”, “repeatedly” and “in a timely manner”.
