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.
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.
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.
It is worth keeping a diary of your needs for at least a week before you fill in the allowance form. The diary can give you a good idea of your care needs - this is the help you need to complete personal tasks.
