Default PIP assessment


I am new to the HDA message board. My wife was diagnosed with HD a couple of years ago (age 38) and after a while trying to convince her that we should apply for PIP (and blue badge etc) we sent the form off a few weeks ago and she now has a assessment next week. Her anxiety levels are high anyway and this will obviously make it 100 times worse.
Can anyone advise what sort of questions they will ask, is it very formal?? I'll struggle to reassure my wife that its all ok but would like to know myself what to expect.
