    Hi, don't want to upset the apple cart and get people thinking I am moaning, since my wife's diagnoses, we have had a lot of people involved, therapist, dietitian, occ health, orthotics, district nurse, social worker, the list goes on, no disrespect to any of them but some have said they will see about getting or doing things, nothing materialises , they all say if you need anything just ring, I have enough to do looking after my wife 24 hrs a day without having to remember to phone anybody, I think these people should be ringing us, to see if we need anything.

    Hi David,

    I’ll assume your son’s PC meets the system requirements for the 4C. I don’t know exactly what you mean by “it doesn’t work”, so my instructions might be very basic, sorry.


    • Plug in the 4C and make sure it’s recognised by the PC Drives.
    • Download the Eye Tracking Software from https://tobiigaming.com/getstarted/
    • Calibrate it for sue.
    • Choose which software program you want to control the PC with – Windows 10 has its own eye tracking in Settings which can be turned on. Or there is free software, such as Click2Speak, Optikey, bkb etc, available to download depending on your wife’s needs. google it and decide which suits her activity best.


    I use my PC extensively – for talking, all my shopping inc groceries, radio and TV, books, emails, education, and so much more, as well as managing the PC itself.

    Love Ellie.

    Hi David,

    I really feel for you.

    It sounds like there are many medical professionals 'buzzing around' in the background, but what actual practical help, if any, have you been offered?

    It sounds like you are caring for your wife all by yourself, without any assistance from carers.

    Has anyone spoken to you about the possibility of your wife having a 'needs assessment' for care from your local authority? A 'needs assessment' is something that your wife is entitled to and you, as your wife's carer, are entitled to a 'carer's assessment'. It could be that you and your wife are missing out on help from carers etc, if you have not had these assessments. The assessments are organised by Adult Social Services at your Local Authority.

    All your time must be taken up with caring for your wife. My experience is the same as yours, where nothing is ever offered to us. It is up to us or those who care for us to have enough time and energy to ask for information etc. I have learnt so much from the folk on this forum about equipment etc that I should be entitled to that I would never have known about otherwise.

    Sometimes, I wonder if the medical professionals received their training at the school of 'secret squirrels' because, in my experience, they rarely seem to be pro-active in offering information/advice.

    Maybe other folk on this forum have medical professionals who are much more pro-active than ours?

    Best wishes,
    Kayleigh

    mirror image of my life at the moment, only after a visit to the local hospice have things moved at the speed needed, pamper day for 8 weeks sorted, suddenly the district nurse rings saying they have set the ball rolling for some night cover so I can get some proper sleep.

    hope all is as well as possible.

    hi ellie, yes its all set up on a new laptop, haven't told the misses but the laptop was nearly seven hundred pounds, but hey you can't take it with you, I just wish we never bothered saving for our old age, having a small stash of money means we have to pay a sum towards the wet room/bedroom.

    hope all is well.

    That's great news about the night cover David - hopefully it will start soon so that you can get some much needed rest and sleep. Thank goodness for the local hospices, they do such great work - I think that the people who work for them are truly amazing.

    I am so sorry that you have been financially penalised by the mean system of 'means testing'. So many of us have on this forum. It is such kick in the teeth for ordinary people who have worked hard and economised, so that they can save for their retirement. Having a new bedroom and wetroom should make life a little easier and more comfortable for you wife though. I hope all goes well when these adaptations to your home are made.

    Best wishes to you and your wife,
    Kayleigh
