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.
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.
