    Hi Will,

    Do you mean you're thinking of renting a full-lift hoist or a sit-to-stand hoist for your holiday accommodation?

    Yes, they do work well as long as you've the right hoist and sling and the person/people operating it knows what they are doing.

    Re typing: perhaps you should get the ball rolling and get an appointment with the Assisitive Technology people to explore options available in making PC use easier?

    Love Ellie.

    Hello Will,
    Hope you are doing better now. My husband is good at writing, he is also cannot go to the office like me, so he is writing and editing for more than 10 years since 2009. Now he's making the list of social issues essay topics so we can help you to make the issue more public.
    Fell free to contact me whenever you can.
