Can dress so can't get help - Carers UK Forum

Can dress so can't get help

Socialise and chat about other areas of your life
I can dress myself some days if need to go out so do not qualify for help
What about the days you have trouble dressing Tracie, did you tell them the worst case sinario?
Yes I did tell them yet again say am coping
And are you coping? How are things for you now?
No not coping
Am I missing something? What has the ability to dress oneself to do with the need for help? My son has severe learning difficulties, brain damage has left him unable to read or write or do any maths, but he gets masses of help. He can dress and wash himself. Surely it is the ability to live a normal life which is the key to help or not? A local authority is supposed to publicise the criteria under which it will, or will not, provide help. Do you know what your LA criteria is?
Not sure Hun

On council website does not say anything bout dressing but when rang said can dress and don't need help mh team said same can dress so am coping
