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.
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.
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.
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.
