I would have a search for home assessments in the search bar above for additional information.

I would have all my paperwork to hand which would include any test results/x/rays/consultant letters/confirmation of diagnoses/Occupational Therapist report. Any treatments and therapies and medications your doing/on. Any other home remedies/OTC meds and things like tens machine, wheat bags, ice packs to show them.

Then theres any aids and adaptions they need to be aware of.

I would personaly have a list to hand as the fog always looms over after a while of what care and mobility needs you have just in case you miss out on anything.

Have someone with you so they can support you and also back up what you say. They can also be a witness if the report comes back with any errors in it.

Hi again.....
Well........ Iv had my home medical assessment for P.I.P and I think it went well....
I answered all of (the blokes) questions as honestly and as informative as i possibly could......
Then he did a little physical examination like...asking me to hold arms/legs out as straight as i could manage and bend/rotate my hands/feet (if possible), I also had to move my head/neck about too.....then I had to push/pull against his hand (the best I could) then he said that it was fine and he wouldn't put me through anymore movements (as by the look on my face he could see i was in pain)..... He told me that with all the info I should definitely get P.I.P maybe only 1 part of it but definitely getting it......so I've now just got to wait now for a few weeks to find out (if) wot I will receive..... :-) :-) :-).... Xxx

Great to hear good news about getting PIP which sometimes is a rarity to hear. I've had my home visit 2 weeks before xmas and had all supporting reports from my consultant so fingers crossed. Does anyone know how long it takes for the decisions to be made and what sort of financial rates we get if successful. Many thanks.

in the mean time may I wish everyone a happy new year and hopefully a pain free one x
