    In some areas there are extra sheltered housing schemes with level access flats and carers on site plus other amenities. Might be worth checking your OT is considering those options.
    In Worcestershire where I worked a Social worker would support a housing application to extra sheltered care on basis of needing care support such as personal care, meal provision.Good Luck.


      That is a right let down for you. A least you have a new chair to look forward to....
      Carer for Dad - MND (ALS) 22/4/21 and Mum Alzheimers 26/5/21.

      Girding my loins and grinding my battle axe for them both...


        So sorry to hear that Matthew, I have my fingers crossed for you to get something soon x
        Diagnosed July 2020, ALS bulbar onset. PEG and ventilator (mainly at night), and pretty poor speech, but legs still about functioning!


          I have also been assessed for a power chair by the local council, and told our house is not suitable, as we have steps at every entrance and not wide enough doors, however, I may still get one, I am told, as it could be kept in the garage.
          I would like one to get around outside and to accompany my wife out walking. It has been 3 weeks but I am still hopeful.
          Diagnosed 2nd Jan 2020
          Both arms/shoulders affected, left worse than right.
          Progressive Muscular Atrophy suspected


            Good luck Dave, Lynne x
            ALS diagnosed November 2017, limb onset. For the 4 yrs previously I was losing my balance.

            I'm staying positive and taking each day as it comes.
