Respite holiday with family
Im a carer of someone on highest level of PIP.She has a mobility car since last Sept Im her sole carer.mum and her driverWe live in the same house She is not wheelchair bound but has physical and mental disability.I booked a week in a lodge 50 miles away last .Its really so she sees her family and I have time to sort her room which she hardly ever leavesRespite. Warned that using the disability car is for her needs and if I have an accident id have to have a good reason for her not being in the car Feeling anxious and feeling like I need to hire a car ? What shall I do ? Im a pensioner and 150 pounds is a lot to pay for another car plus fuel .Just dont want to fall foul of rules
