Hi, I am looking for some advice with regards to Attendance Allowance for my partners mother. She is going to be 70 this year and was on DLA for years. She was awarded it for life however, when PIP came into force she had to apply for that and everything was taken off of her. She has heart problems, had a stroke some years ago and mobility issues and recently been in hospital. She can't wash herself or cook and clean like she used to. Seeing as she is now over the 65 age limit for the PIP and the appeal time period has long past (two and a half years ago), we are looking into trying to get Attendance Allowance for her. I just wanted to know what the process was with this benefit and is there any assessment etc? She can't walk or go anywhere. Is it based on her conditions, medication, lack of mobility etc or on how these things effect her daily life? As I am not familiar with Attendance Allowance I need a bit of advice. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
