PIP to Adult Disability Payment advice

Hi there,

We live in Scotland and my Mum is currently on the lowest amount of mobility only PIP and currently receives £27 per week. She got her PIP reward reviewed early last year, as on the initial reward letter it said she was awarded PIP until 2023, so not sure why it was reviewed so early? She has high blood pressure, and has had vasovagal episodes triggered by stress. Over the last month things have been getting worse but she does not receive the daily living component of PIP and now needs a lot more care. How do I go about applying for this? I have made an application to Adult Disability but they just called today to say that she receives PIP so can not look at her application until she has been transferred over to Adult Disablity Payment. Do I call PIP and ask for another review, or how do I apply for extra PIP?
