Morning all, just a thought , I told assessor I need help with exercises between fifteen mins and 30 mins a day , which time scale will she take ? only could make a difference on managing therapy questions ?

    Morning, i don’t think it Will matter as it’s only one descriptor, but you can request a copy of your assessment report and on receiving it you can have a look and see what your award may should be but you still have to wait for your award notification letter.

    Therapy in your own home must have been prescribed or recommended by a registered doctor, nurse, pharmacist or health professional regulated by the Health Professions Council.

    Yes my physiotherapist recommended that I  exercise and showed me what and how to do them which can take me and my partner between 15/30 mins a day which I told assessor .

    My questions is .... I noticed on points scoring ( help with therapy etc , ) “ needs help with therapy for no more that 35 hours a week which equates to half an hour a day , but I told her I need help between 15 & 30 mins a day , what time will she have taken , cause if it’s 15 mins. would score less for that activity ?

    The descriptor is Needs supervision, prompting or assistance to be able to manage therapy that takes no more than 3.5 hours a week and this could score 2 points under activity C. Requesting a copy of the assessment report as advised will tell you what the recommendations are.
