I have witnessed the stress and anxiety caused by the application and assessment process required for PIP. Dementia is an unpredictable illness where every minute, hour and day can be different and you can also not predict someone’s life span.
In addition to this if someone’s mental well being is compromised this can contribute to worsening dementia symptoms.
