Thank you Lynne,
My mum was trying to negotiate with doctors and managed to get an older, used wheelchair so at least this. And, as you say, he might need a better one anyway in the future so I hope we can get this, I will try to make sure that people who make decisions understand our need for it. But we still have to pay for the hoist as our country simply doesn't pay for these things...
We are trying to get our day out of the house so we'll see, he was even talking about a hoist and special seat in the car so I hope this means he will finally agree to go somewhere.
Best of luck to you, Lynne and thank you for the support! xx
