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.
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.
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.
Give plenty of information in your own words about your personal circumstances. Don’t worry if you need to repeat yourself.
