    Hi @elizabeth1960 - Welcome to the community. I'm sorry about the increasing difficulties your parents are encountering. Do you have anyone supporting your application? I'm wondering if you've had an assessment by an occupational therapist who may have been able to support with this. :)

    Hi and welcome to the community, I would suggest you put in a complaint to a more senior person at the housing association and also maybe contact the OH assessor to see if they can have any influence on having this progressed.

    Another option would be to contact your local MP
