Refunds from the local councils

I have received nearly £300 rebate from the local council because I have been out into the Support group on my ESA payment.

I am now entitled to full rent and council tax benefit, even though I wasn’t informed of this, and continued to pay my money each month as required for my rent and council tax.

It has come in nice, admittedly, but it would’ve been nice to have been informed by the DWP that I was entitled to the extra help in the first place – the council told me there had been a change in my circumstances, and I didn’t even know anything about it!

People will say that this is information you should find out yourself, but when you are suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease your memory doesn’t think like that, and a courtesy letter wouldn’t be such a problem, would it?

Anyway, I am much happier now that I am in receipt of full rent and council tax benefit. It will make life a lot more easier for me, even though it is only working out at about £30 per month.

My name is Daryl and I was born in October 1965. I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease in June 2011, and I was put on medication, which I believe is helping keep the worst of the condition at bay. In November 2012 I was also diagnosed with the first stages of Parkinson's Disease and I am now two lots of medication for this illness as well. I live in a secure bungalow in an elderly complex in my hometown of Sutton-in-Ashfield and I have support from the social services and a support worker who visits six hours per week to help me live my life as independently as possible. Visit me on my Facebook page... I love life now, and the people in it - so show your support for me and the organisations that support dementia and Parkinson's disease - let's make this small world of ours a much more pleasant place to live in by caring for those that need that little bit more help in life!
