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.
Help with personal tasks does not mean help with things like housework or gardening or other tasks around the home. Personal tasks means things like:
1. getting in or out of bed.
2. having a bath or shower.
3. getting dressed.
4. being reminded or encouraged to eat or drink.
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.
You can ask a friend, relative or carer if you wouldd rather they help you with the form. If you are terminally ill you will only need to answer some of the questions. Read more about claiming Attendance Allowance if you are terminally ill.
