What I have said is what the DWP look for.

 

You should have appealed.

 

What you said is incorrect. For middle rate care you need to show you need FREQUENT help throughout the day - 5-10 times a day is what they are looking for. For night time care (without day time needs) you need repeated help (at least twice) or prolonged help (more than 20 minutes).

 

For low rate care you either need to pass the cooking test, or need help for at least an hour a day.

 

I think you're getting the criteria mixed up.

Not at all.

 

Daytime care

 

Frequent means more than twice

Throughout the day means at intervals during the day

Significant period means more than an hour in total.

Having argued many many DLA recons and appeals I can tell you that regardless of what is written as meaning 'frequent', needing help three separate times in a day is not going to get a middle rate care award at Tribunal (unless substantial help is required each time). What is written and what is accepted in the real situation of a Tribunal is often quite different.

 

Oh, and significant period was what was written for low rate care.
