List things that you struggle to do unaided, even if you’ve developed ways to cope. If something takes you much longer than it would somebody without a disability, or you cannot do it safely, this can be taken into account. Say if you need reminding or encouraging to do things, as this also counts as help.
What you should write about on the form? The DWP will use your form to decide whether to give you Attendance Allowance. They will be looking to see:
1. What difficulties you have, or how much help you need.
2. How often you have difficulties or need help.
3. What sort of help you need.
You do not have to be getting any help at the moment - the important thing is that you need it. For example, you might need to hold on to furniture to move around your home.
Do not forget to describe any accidents or falls you have had. Then explain the effects of all your disabilities and health conditions, and how they interact with each other.
Filling in the Attendance Allowance form can be difficult - there are some personal questions which can be emotionally draining. Do not worry though - help is available and you do not have to fill in the form alone.
