Apart from my other good news posted on the forum today, my support worker came to see me this morning and suggest i try to go for a NHS powered wheelchair. up until now i have been using a manual chair pushed by my husband, but he now has arthritis in both knees and one shoulder which makes pushing me around outside very painful for him. [I] am not able to manually propel myself. i have got an appointment Wednesday to see nurse at GP surgery to be weighed and measured.
i would like to know roughly how long the process takes and is it as bad as applying for dla!!? Sorry for all my questions but i am totally new to all this so have no experience of anything.
