Hi all had had the great news that Brian will be home on the 8th March. So my question is we are going to claim pip the physio has said he can do the stairs very good but is not allowed to do it without supervision because of balance problems and his impaired vision would that go against him when applying for pip?. As it stands at present he cannot be left alone to do either a hot meal or even make a hot drink we have carers coming in for 6 weeks then stroke out reach to aid his recovery. Any advice would be much appreciated as I have said before this is all new to us.
