Yes I have seen those thank you. Trouble is if we went from the room downstairs into the room upstairs my neighbour would be far from happy because we live in an upstairs flat! One up and one down. 20 years ago when we bought the place we chose to buy the upstairs flat because it seemed more secure ...
Thank you. That is useful as a last resort but I will wait and see if there are any stairlift manufacturers already producing these because charities have limited funds whereas manufacturers sell for profit. Stannah do a wheelchair stairlift but it wont fit on a normal household stairwell. Its insta...
Hello, does anyone know if there is such a thing as a wheelchair stairlift which will fit on a normal household size stairwell? Its getting increasingly difficult to transfer my wife from wheelchair onto stairlift and back to wheelchair again. She has had numerous falls recently and the most dangero...
Well yesterday I had a carers assessment over the phone and to be honest, it was a complete waste of time!

Since Amitriptyline seems to have little or no effect I wondered if any other sufferers ...
Does anyone here suffer from Peripheral Neuropathy problems? I am a carer for my wife who has co ordination difficulties and mild learning difficulties following a brain injury. She is confined to a wheelchair when outside and can walk slowly with a walking aid when indoors but is very prone to fall...
Porta Potties are OK for camping but if my wife was capable of getting on & off a Porta Potty, she would be able to use a normal toilet. The coomode his adjustable height, has removeable arms to help with transfer to & from a wheelchair. I agree that in the right environment, a porta Potty is great ...
For several years now I have always emptied the commode my wife has to use everytime she has used it & always wondered what happens to people who have 2 or 3 daily visits from paid carers instead of someone living full time with them to provide care. Then I had a worsening of my own medical conditio...
