I am a carer for a lady, she cannot use her arms or hands due to having had two frozen shoulders, as a result of the pain from this, her elbows and hands locked, and she can no longer use them, until she has physiotherapy, but she cannot leave the house, as she also has severe agoraphobia. When she was first assessed in 2015,she was awarded 39points on pip, when she had an atos assesmet in April 2017,she was awarded zero points, although she had got worse, what with the severe agoraphobia, and now not being able to walk more than 6paces.we appealed to the court, for a home visit, and in november 2018 were finally granted one, it will be on the 10th jan, but my point is, she will have been waiting 60weeks and she has been made to very ill by all the stress of waiting, and we have been very financially badly off, I am just wondering if a home visit is a rare thing?
