Complicated PIP Question
My husband has been given his pip assessment date for 11th April he asked for home appt but they have sent him an appt at their centre ... he is more or less housebound most days sometimes bedridden with chronic pain ... he is having Epidural on 13 April .... I know he could press for a home visit but the problem is if he refuses this appt his next one may come when he is in less pain and more mobility in his Epidural " window" of 5/6 weeks , he has these twice a year but don't last long ... now have been told by someone if he goes in his wheelchair regardless of how bad and difficult it will be for him it will be used against him as not being "housebound" like he states on his form .... if he asks for new date chances are it will be when he is a bit more oainfree so won't be fair assessment .... don't know what to do ... he is really poorly all year except for two 5/6week windows ... any advice would be appreciated ... sorry it's long winded x
