Hi Well it arrived Husband was awarded enhanced mobility but no care allowance, I had a feeling he would not be awarded care allowance because at the time of the assessment he had only just come out of hospital and was on high dose steroids so they was making him run before he could walk so to speak When he is discharged from hospital they follow up with what they call hospital rest at home and copd nurses come every other day to check his stats. We explained all this to the assessor. At the start of this illness I had to come off work due to every couple of weeks sometimes less he would end up in hospital and once in ICU the attacks would come on so quick, he does not have oxygen because he retains it. Hospital have given us an information card to carry with him regarding this and it states he has to be seen to immediately due to respiratory arrest. Would kindly appreciate your thoughts on this. Hope everyone is keeping as well as they can and enjoying their day. xx
