Personal Independence Payment - Prompting
“Prompting” means reminding, encouraging or explaining by another person.
I have an important concern over the issue of prompting. That is, can anyone give me some advice, or clarification about the DWP guidelines/rules for PIP "prompting", please.
For example, in the PIP descriptor, Preparing Food, d. Needs prompting to be able to either prepare or cook a simple meal. 2 points.
I have read that the person doing that actual prompting to someone who needs it does NOT need to be present with that person when they prompt them, but can instead give the prompting by either telephone, text or email. Does anyone know if that is true, please? Alos, can the person who does the prompting be a friend/family member?
