Hi Lorna can i ask you out of curiosity what your mobility is like and how it impacts your life? I think a lot of people are worried about going onto Pip. I am waiting i am on indefinite DLA. I have help with PAs from Direct Payments, i cant drive or go out on my own, and in pain as soon as I put my feet on the floor.
I use my wheelchairs, and mobility scooters to get about and my walking stick.
I use my mobility componant of DLA to for stuff to help me and pay taxis as well to take me out when i am on my own. I save it up to upgrade my mobility stuff and a few years back saved it to remodel my bathroom, take the bath out and put a walk in shower in. Just bought myself a new electric wheelchair…so my husband can take me out more as he cant push me in a conventenional wheelchair as he has COPD. I am now hoping to save it to put a stair lift in.
But looking at the requirements for PIP i would fail miserably…
Oh well i suppose what will be will be, next year I will just apply for attendance allowance to help me get out. But it must be a worry for younger people with MS, (younger then me lol).
Good luck hun. I think they do this hoping people simply wont bother. x
