    Hi shelliemarie,

    You need to get in touch with your Adult Social Care team at your local council. They will be able to put you in touch with an Occupational Therapist who can come and assess you at home to see what aids or adaptations you need to help to help you manage. 

    DLA has ended for working age adults and has been replaced with Personal Independence Payment (PIP). New claims for PIP started in April 2013 and all existing DLA claimants will be invited to claim PIP by September 2017. 

    Let me know if you would like some more information about PIP or if you would like me to find you a local advice service to assist you with the PIP claim. It's important to try and meet the deadlines given or get help to ask for an extension if you're not able to apply for PIP in the 28 day window.

    Best wishes
