    Contact DWP and politely ask for a home assessment  Explain the difficulties you have in travelling on your own, even if could.
    If they get uppity about a home assessment, write in ASAP, after the conversation, with any supporting information, and request a home visit.

    And at the same time throw the Equalities Act at them - they must make suitable adjustments - such an adjustment is having a home assessment!
