Right Side Hemiplegia PIP
Hi, I am 28 years old with right side hemiplegia which limits the use of my right hand and foot. I have recently been sent the PIP form and have an face to face appointment booked in for the coming week. I was awarded DLA lower rate care indefinitely when I was 17. My mother takes care of all my needs at home. I.e cooking, showering, putting on certain clothes etc. I also have an adapted car. Do I have a good chance of transitioning over to standard rate care. I’m so anxious and worried about this assessment I can’t sleep. Any one with advice would be appreciated. Anyone receiving PIP with right side hemiplegia?
