Hi, never new this site existed.
i have been struggling with CA for over 15 years now, saw neurologist on a regular basis in the early days, but it never got me anywhere, so i have just put up with it the best i can.
i had no idea that DLA was available for this condition. My problem is that i am coming up to 67 yrs now, so DLA is not available.
It appears that Atendance Allowance is the only option available now. This seems to focus more on a carer allowance, rather than mobility help.
Has anyone else had this problem, or got any advice to offer.
i really struggle with walking any distance and my balance gets worse the further i have to walk, also, i have been diagnosed with Asbestosis, which severly restricts my breathing.
i fall over on a regular basis, and have broken my ankle, broken and bruised ribs several times.
any help will be much appreciated.
