If in doubt contact age concern and get them to help. I fill in forms and fail miserably to express myself well,,,,,,as Shelly mentioned. Age concern sent a lady round to help me.
Do not feel embarrassed.......I used to but now realise it's there to help after 40 years of paying into the system. Be prepared for a medical assessment and a very very long wait.
ATOS did my last medical......it took 3 visits to get someone there to do it......efficiency is not their middle name.
Basically they try to make life as difficult as possible for those of us already suffering difficulties.
I can't stress strongly enough the value of Age Concern.
