I was diagnosed with Parkinson's 4years ago and received enhanced daily living component and standard mobility. I had my renewal assessment in June. I called today as hadn't heard anything and was told daily living component had been reduced to standard .Just don't get it. During assessment I reiterated what I had put on the form that my condition has worsened. It affects my balance, concentration, mobility and my hands are particularly bad. I need assistance with dressing because I can't manage buttons etc, I have to have someone with me when I shower in case I fall. My son prepared meals as I can't grip utensils or lift heavy pans. I only drive to go about a mile away or local shop now. I am too frightened to drive further as I get lost and I panic. I walk with a stick and am in constant pain requiring morphine. The assessor said she felt I need enhanced component in both categories. I just don't understand their decision. Have been in tears all evening. Not seen the report yet but I wonder if what she said is very different from what she wrote. Help please
