    Configura chair like new free for collection

    Hello,

    My father recently passed away but had received this chair funded by the MNDA. As he was in & out of hospital over the past few months he only used it for around 3 weeks and it is like brand new - no marks, stains or wear & tear.

    It is great for someone with MND- reclines & moves in a safe & supportive way. User is able to relieve pressure using remote controls easily. My dad said it was the comfiest chair he’d had - he was completely immobile (arms and legs affected by mnd).

    MNDA have said they don’t take the chairs back and we only paid for delivery and collection (approx £130). Association kindly funded the chair.

    I would like someone else with MND to get the benefit of this chair and not have to wait for months for social services etc to identify that this would be of use - my dad had to wait so long for that stage that he suffered unnecessarily including falling from an unsuitable recliner chair that was previously provided before this one.

    If anybody would like this chair please contact me - chair is free I just want someone to get use and benefit from this as I know how life changing it was even for a few weeks for my dad.

    Collection would be needed from Tameside, M34.

    Thank you - details below - the chair I have is cream and beige (not black cushion) - compared to most chairs for disabled users it is actually very trendy looking and fits well in the living room, doesn’t appear medical like other provided chairs.

      Hi vicky,

      Sorry to hear about your father's passing but so pleased that you have offered the chair here

      I have been fortunate enough to get one but others might not be so very lucky.

      It would be handy to know his height etc. Also if it is a one or two motor one.

      Love Terry

              Hi Vicky

              In view of Nettie's interest and her proximity to you, please ignore my earlier PM and give her priority if the chair is still available.

                Hi Nettie and welcome to the forum,

                Can you tell us a little bit about your involvement with Mnd. No need if you don't want to but it's always nice to know a little bit about your situation.

                Love Terry

                    Hi Janette,

                    I have had a PEG for about five years and have have found it useful for hydration when rough. Keep eating but maybe have easier to eat meals and smaller ones more often.

                    Don't tire yourself out eating, you can still eat some of the things you like and supplement using the peg.

                    Love Terry

                        Hi Terry, it is so exhausting to eat sometimes but enjoy taste, but on days like today when I bite my tongue when sneezing it’s so painful will have a word with dietician about supplements thanks love Janette

                            Hi Nettie,

                            Bitting your lips and tongue is one of the pleasures of Mnd, especially when sneezing. I do manage to close my teeth before a sneeze sometimes which can work.

                            If you getting tired when eating you are more likely to make mistakes.

                            See your dietitian to get some back up and have smaller portions and enjoy your food. Sometimes having smaller amounts of hot food is less dounting and then maybe have seconds that are reheated.

                            Love Terry
