Blue Badge Application
A retired married couple came to the bureau to apply for a Blue Badge. The husband suffered with dementia and could not be left alone. The wife worried when they were out together and she went to get parking ticket for example that there was a danger of the husband wandering away and getting lost. The wife felt if they could park closer to facilities it would be less of an issue for her.
Neither the husband nor the wife had a qualifying benefit or disability to be eligible for a blue badge without further assessment, so we completed the local Council’s blue badge application form explaining the client’s circumstances.
The couple were successful in obtaining a blue badge and we received a letter of thanks from them.
