    Hi Jeanette, Try a company called Millbrook 03301247077, they do work for the NHS and Occupational Therapy. I'm waiting for them to fit a shower and outside lift. A thought have you contacted you local Occupational Therapy. They should be able to help you.

      Hi All. Well you learn as you go along about the financial cost of MND.I am trying to plan ahead and so got 3 quotes for through floor lifts.Quotes were £13-15000.A friend suggested looking a refurbished one that comes with an installation plan.Well this seems more like it and the same lift but reconditioned is half the price

        Hi Jeanette ,my through floor lift is second hand and being fitted next week. I found a couple of companies on the internet that take out lifts, refurbish if needed and then install. I am not sure but think if you have savings over 23,250 you don't get financial help towards it..See previous posts about lifts. .The OT from the hospice I am linked too gave me clear guidelines on the size of lift I need given the unpredictability of this disease .She felt I may end up with several sizes of wheelchairs. Happy Researching .I dont want to recommend anyone as mine isn't fitted yet. Best wishes Mary
