    Different to my local Wheelchair Services who are really good. I haven’t changed my powered wheelchair but they offered to do so when I described a powered wheelchair that I’d seen when we were at a motorway service area. She knew the one that I’d described but she explained that it cannot have a kerb lifter on it (which I have and need to get up and down local kerbs, up to 4 inches) so I declined. 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.

      they are going to look into getting stephen a chair - that should be interesting. think its going to be a struggle to get him into one. but they need to start the ball rolling at some stage. they talked about stopping smoking - that also made me laugh - tried that one for 40 years.

      yes im looking at 2nd hand wavs. i recall jeantte saying about head height, stephens 6ft 2", or being unable to see much out the windows so im going to look at that too. so much to think about. i'll get a car and he wont want to go out. though if we are stuck with this flat he wont be going any where any way. for one problem i solve another one seems to pop up. i was just going to think about something else but as it was another problem rather than a solution i have deleted it.

      what i was thinking of doing was getting loads of stick on labels and using a wall and sticking them on so it looks like i am trying to solve a crime with lots of coloured threads linking one bit to another. it might work.
      when i can think of something profound i will update this.

          Yes Denise, we got a Fiat doblo there’s plenty of head height, Phil sat in my wheelchair and drove into it and he’s 6ft 2” also and he he had a little bit of headroom, the only thing is it has a shelf above the windscreen which blocks my view somewhat and I’m only 5ft 2”
          Hope you get sorted soon 👍 x
