Handicapped Parking Ticket.
Last year I applied for a handicapped parkingticket I was iniatally told that they could do a house visit to check that I was indeed handicapped.
When the letter came with the appointment I was disappointed to discover it was for an appointment at the office of the GGGD.
The appointment was for 9.30 am which meant a 8.30 pick up by the mobility bus, they always insist on picking you up an hour before your appointment.
This in turn would mean that Richie would have to get me out of bed at 6.30 in order for me to be ready for 8.30 all this for 15 minutes at the GGGD office.
As I could not get a home visit I tried very hard to get a later appointment somehow this was not sucessful and in August I had to stay in bed because of the pressure sore.
Even then the GGGD would not do a home visit saying instead when they called me in September that they would check back in 2009.
In the meantime have found out from another dutch blogger that home visits are possible and will be paid for from the WMO, which is a law regulating all support for the handicapped.
So I will be applying to the GGGD next week for a home visit.
Thank you Peggy for the information on your blog.
