PIP appeal turned down
After a 2 and a half hour appeal appointment my husband was turned down only 7 points. 2 years ago he was given it for life now none .He has had 3 strokes in which he is blind in one eye and problems with the other one .And has mental illness in many ways .2 weeks before Christmas he was diagnosed with vascular dementia and Alzheimer's disease now receiving meds .We have been told to make a new claim . My point is that yesterday we were treated very bad by the appeal people not only did my husband had to stop half way through as his hearts a few problems as he has a reaveal device in his chest which went off . They took no consideration for him 5 minutes break only which bye then he was not looking to good . He was shaking so bad they still fired on with the questions .I was in the room all the time feeling very upset and confused with all of it .I also have vascular dementia disease they asked me questions which I could not answer as I was crying so much .I feel that the way pip treat you is a disgrace and could not go through it all happening again .I feel so letdown with the support .
