Hi, my name is Pol!
I am my wife's full time carer. My wife is housebound due to having genetic spinal degeneration and subsequent loss of discs and also severe pain caused by bone pressing on her nerve fibres. She had been asked to go to a face to face assessment, but her GP has sent a letter to the assessment centre for a home visit. So far the centre had now merely issued a new assessment date at the centre in the next town. My wife is unable to soit with her legs down and has them raised at all times and is also unable to use a wheelchair. She is obviously concerned that if she doesn't attend the assessment, she may have her benefit stopped. She isn't against having the assessment, but just needs one at home. What should she do to achieve this?
