    Wheelchair Assessment

    I had a wheelchair assessment today because I need a new standing wheelchair as the old second hand one is quite worn.

    As well as supply, service and modify wheelchairs, the wheelchair service can and normally issue vouchers for you to spend towards the cost of a new chair if you need something different that they can't supply.

    The amount of the voucher can vary depending on, needs, postcode and the amount of budget left that they have set aside.

    Has anyone else gone down this route?

    Are you due for a normal wheelchair assessment?

    Love Terry

    Hi Max;

    Hope your new one is better for you. They might provide electric leg risers if your feet and lower legs swell.

    Love Terry

    Hi Max;

    Being tall is another disability in it's self when you are disabled. Me at six foot find many things too small and uncomfortable. Wheelchairs need to be bigger, higher, meaning that you can't get under tables or see out of normal WAV cars.

    Also our height makes it harder for people to care for us. I know that you are well over six foot so it's even more problems for you.

    Love Terry
