    Cool Holiday with an adjustable bed

    I've just been on the interweb for a good four hours looking for holiday places with adjustable beds. Or even just the one adjustable bed; I'm happy to bed down on an airbed. Can I find any? No. Apart from centerparcs which there is no way I'll be going to as I look like a lumpy blimp in my swimming costume. Michael can walk fine but needs a profiling bed because of breathing and neck issues. Any ideas?

    Hi Julip..Brickhouse Farm Cottages in Hambleton near Blackpool have profiling beds..on the www.chuc.org.uk there is info on hotels and accommodation that have ceiling hoists and some have the profiling beds too...Dublin, Annan in Scotland, Jersey etc and abroad too. There's loads to look at. Try looking at cruises too (if budget allows)...the travel agents can give more info on this x

    Hi Julip;

    I did manage to get a district nurse in a area to get a bed delivered to the accomadation for 3 weeks but it was a bit hard and Papworth then had my address as LIttlehamptom. Don't ask me how or why.

    The other possibility is a cruise as there is help available from some home ports. I reckon that this would have to be booked a long way in advanced.

    We have just returned from a holiday at Wroxham. We stayed at Hall Farm Cottages just outside Wroxham. You can hire hospital beds for £65 and any other equipment you might need. Some things are supplied by the owners eg shower commode chair, recliner. They were very helpful and a few people with disabilities were staying there. You do need transport to get around. We went on a boat trip that took Steve’s power chair and frequented a few pubs and went to the coast which was about 30mins away.

    Hi Julip,

    Last month when I was in Scotland I checked out a place on the Fife side of the Firth of Forth. It is run by a charity set up to help people with disabilities and life limiting illnesses. There are 4 cottages purpose built with ceiling hoists, profiling beds, wet rooms and clos-o-mat toilets and airflow mattresses. Some cottages will sleep up to 8 people so ideal for family sharing.

    Check out the website www.homelands-fife.co.uk

    Julip, my favourite place mentioned by Boiler68, the facilities at Pine Cottage,Brickhouse Farm, Brickhouse Lane, Poulton-Lye-Fylde up in Lancashire. They have everything the ceiling hoist from bed to bathroom, all good beds. The place we had were good big rooms and lots of room for family and we took all so six adults and three grandkids and good play area for them. Guess what not far from my favourite as a kid Blackpool and easy get up on my wheelchair. Taken family there last May half terms. Best wishes John

    I just found out that the same company provides equipment for hotel stays and holiday rentals.
