Has anyone any advice with pip?
Has anyone any advice with pip? My husband was on dla had to apply for pip. Is in the support group for esa until 2019 review. He had low mobility standard care on dla. He was eligile for carer allowance which I recieve. I filled in the forms at length describing all the care I do on the affects of his disability. He had a face to face assesment. He' been granted enhanced mobility and no care... he got 6 points needing a minimum of 8. So in one respect it is positive. But as I don't drive and he can't. The daily living is more important as his epilepsy is brittle and he also suffers with depression. The criteria suggests that he got pip mobility needing help to go on journey etc. Points suggest he needs supervising in the bath and cooking. Suggestions of good communication was not correct as memory was said to be good and it didn' say about needing prompting. How should I proceed as they acknowledged he had 4/ 5 tonic clonic fits a month but did not mention the nocturnal ones which affect him more than 50% of the week. My husband would love to go to work in reality but years of seizures and complex depression means he is a shell of himself. Has anyone advice please?
