After assessment - DLA To Pip
Hello, just looking for any advice, my husband had a lifetime award for DLA, and in December 17 we received a DLA - to Pip letter. The application form came in late January, took nearly 3 weeks to arrive, it went back in the time scale to them. We heard nothing until late April when a letter from Capita came saying they would be in touch. About 3 and half weeks ago we had a letter with a home assessment date on, and a lady came to see my husband she said she was a nurse. When she came in said she didn't know why she was here but had to do the interview, so she got on with a few questions, she was here I would say 25 minutes at the most. My husband cannot stand without help or walk, but she asked for him to stand and lift up a leg which he can hardly do, she didn't want to look around or to see the medications, or adaptions. She said it would be about 6 weeks when we hear something, just wondered if these are normal timescales and what happened during her visit here etc, is normal practice. I must admit had very few nights of sleep since January as I am on my own coping alone with my husband. Thank you.
