Having been through a disabled facilities grant all I can say is - be prepared to go to war! My husband had a ramp built for the front door and a wetroom created from the bathroom which took 2.5 years all told & nearly drove me to a breakdown. It would have taken a lot longer had I not spent copious...
Surely it depends whose mobility payments pay for the wheelchair accessible vehicle. If the car is paid for from your grandson's mobility component of the DLA/PIP payment then the car needs to be available for his use. It isn't his mother's to use as she wishes but needs to be available for his use ...
Carers Allowance is a taxable benefit so will need to be declared as such on your self assessment tax form. Ring the Carers Allowance department to declare that you are now self employed & give them the date. They will want to see the accounts on a regular basis. When i began my self employment they...
My husband didn't have a medical & was assessed solely on the forms & paperwork we sent in.
When we mentioned this to a charity support worker he said that was very unusual & he'd not heard of it before. People with a much worse disability to my husband were still having assessments.
We have a hoist for my husband's wheelchair. Originally it was for a scooter but when he changed to a power chair we had the bracket changed over. It is fantastic as there is no lifting required just looping the hoist straps onto the wheelchair bracket. If you google mobility car adaptions in your l...
It depends where you live in the UK. I suggest you look here

It is fractionally wid...
We are expecting to lose it all because of other people we know who have quite extensive needs who have lost everything. A friend of my husbands who is an above knee amputation on one leg & is waiting surgery on his other knee went from highest rate mobility to no mobility component at all, despite ...
My husband has recently had the forms for PIP having been on DLA for life. He needs my help for washing, dressing, food preparation, is subject to falls, can only walk indoors, needs me to do daily physio, can't self-propel his wheelchair......the list goes on but you get the gist. This is a deterio...
I care for my husband who has MD which has the deterioration & loss of motor control that your husband has. We aren't so far down the line in that my husband can be left at home alone though I am on call for falls etc & he is unable to go out alone. My husband & I both read this with a great feeling...
