Oh I absolutely know where

Oh I absolutely know where your coming from Boggle re- children DLA, but depending on how they intend to carry out these medicals it could present something of a problem for my son, there is no question he will get it whoever looks at him, thinking blindingly obvious here but my point was the intention seems to be weeding out those who are swinging the lead and adults would generally be better at that than children.

Vicky - sadly children are sometimes taught to swing the lead by parents! Image

When daughter went for her mobility assessment (aged 5 back then) we were summoned to a surgery that was not our own. We waited in the waiting area and patients were called in over the tannoy system - when it was our turn the doctor came out to get us - as I began to push her chair out of the waiting room he smiled and said 'oh it's alright you can let her walk in' - I understand that he did this to try and catch us out if we were swinging the lead - though to be honest he only needed to take one look at her to realise that she couldn't walk at all! At the time I was a bit offended but I was also naive enough not to realise that people really did make false dis claims!!! Image

The whole problem with the re-assessment thing is that it would not be needed if false claims did not exist - these are the people we should be angry with. I had a job recently to persuade a friend that he should not report his up and coming surgery as a change of circumstances as it would be some time after the surgery before things began to improve - he was convinced that he would be better immeditely and back to work within weeks! I was right - immediately after the surgery he was worse!!! His recovery will be slow but he was actually going to tell the benefits agency before the op that he intended to be better by X date - bless him!!!!! Image

The stress of the re-assessments is a major problem - I don't think any government will ever adaquately address this issue - and we should remember that previous governments encouraged people to make false claims in order to keep unemployment figures down - the whole issue needs to be sensitively addressed and I believe that anyone being refused DLA following reassessment should not actually lose the benefit until after they lose an appeal - if you see what I mean.

It is impossible NOT to hear any thing about this budget stuff...

How are you all?

My husband is poorly again...he can only see and think the worst senario WILL happen to us]http://www.carersuk.org/images/icon_lol.gif[/img] Image Image Shall we move to some where cheaper that makes authority happy then crises occur Image Image Image

The cuts are unavoidable but I expected to hear some thing a little positive about supporting Carers and disabled people...

Another sleepless night....

Why should you goto work in the morning only to see your neighbours blinds down living off welfare
line the condem have come up with? The ministers behind these rehearsed lines really know how to insult don't they. As anyones caree who takes anti-depressents will know, lethargy and increased sleep are part and parcel of the medication. But if you sleep in past 8am, your a benefit scrounger Image . Odds on that the ESA system is based on this feeble judgement.

Does the claimant wake up att;

1. 6-7am (15 points)
2. 8+am (nil pwa)
3. 7-8am (10 points)
4. 5-6am (5 points)

Talking about the extra room .... when STAN was really ill thats the last 4 months before he went into hospital for the last time , as he was in a very large bedroom i actually moved the sofa bed into his room and slept beside him. this extra room is an absolute farce , do carers uk welcome it Image

Also if you have been up half the night caring [not boozing] it would be nice to know we are allowed to try and get some sleep somewhere Image
Anyway when people vote they know what they are going to get.
Wonder how this affects Scotland as they have their own parliament and made it crystal clear who they did not vote for.
