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.
Remember to include any help you need during the night too. You should also write on the diary how many times you need help with tasks like getting out of chairs. If you get help to fill in the form from your nearest Citizens Advice, remember to take your diary with you.
Contact your nearest Citizens Advice and ask if they can help you with your form. The form is long and can take time to fill in so you might need to ask for an appointment if you want help from your nearest Citizens Advice.
Allowance form is awarded based on your needs, not just on your medical condition. Many applications are turned down because people do not mention or are not clear about how their illness or disability affects their lives. Do not underestimate your needs when filling in the form.
