DLA to PIP. I've given detailed info for each factor along with 2 supporting letters. Anything else?

My adult daughter has been on LRC/LRM since 2007.  I’ve been providing 24/7 care for her since 2010 and fluffed up two reviews so the award stayed the same both times.

Having received an updated crisis plan from social care I plucked up the courage to seek advice from a welfare benefits adviser who suggested I phone PIP to start the process.  Problem being my daughter is unable to process phone calls so took 3 attempts to get her to follow a prompt sheet I had drafted for her.

I’m posting the form in two days.  I’ve given detailed info regarding each factor, enclosed 2 supporting letters and I’m going to request the longest award.

Is there anything else?
