ok so im filling in the ESA 50 form for my mom and i have been able to awnser all question apart from one the first one on how far she can walk before needing to stop , the choices are 50 meters, 100 meters , 200 meters or it varies.
Denise has been giving me great advice and i thought i knew what to put as mom can walk about 50 meters before she needs to stop due to fatigue and pain but i was doing more research and i found a website which has now confused me it states that
"Bear in mind that a person who can easily manage around the house and garden is unlikely to be limited to mobility of less than 200 metres; a person who can mobilise around a shopping centre/supermarket is unlikely to be limited to mobility of less than 800 metres although consideration must be given to the speed of walking, stops and pauses etc. Someone who is able only to move around within their home is unlikely to manage 200m."
mom can walk round a shop but once we have finished she has to sit down so this worried me as im now unsure again of what to pick? so im confused as i thought the question was how far she can walk before needing to stop not if she can walk round her home or shop?
