Hi B&W PIP

Please will you assist on Q for washing and bathing if you have no actual physical person to help when really you need one thanks
Aids such as bath handle rail fitted are used and long handle brush

However there is not person to assist thanks you
Q is as guide mentions decision makers may argue that aid appliance can be used instead of supervision assistance

Many thanks G Wishes

You are being assessed on the care and assistance that you need, not the help you actually get.

That said, notice will be taken of how you manage at the moment so any aids that you use will be taken into account.

If you are unable to wash fully, even with these aids then you need to explain why this is the case in your reply.
