Think about all the things you cannot do, or have trouble with, because of your condition. Do not leave things out, even if you feel you can manage well enough: if you have found complicated ways of coping, make sure you explain these too.
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.
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.
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.
