    It depends on your local councils policies, how much housing stock they have and what is available. Unfortunately there are a lot of us in the same position. The properties we need/require are just not becoming empty. I would maybe contact them again and ask them how much longer you might have to wait. Some councils have bidding systems, I don't know if your council has this. If so, you need to bid on a property to be considered.
    I am in the same situation. Cannot manage stairs, use bath etc. I am still waiting to hear if I have been accepted on the list and which banding I have.
    Good luck and I hope you get something sorted soon.
    What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
