It,s quite some time since I was around on the forum…long story but hope your are all doing the best possible.
Could I please pick your brains ?
I am getting a community OT assessment soon and would really appreciate any advice about what help I could ask for.
To be honest I am finding nearly everything very difficult these days so hoping for a few things that might make daily life a bit easier.
I am expecting that the OT will suggest a few handrails etc and I really hope for a better bathing/showering suggestion as the bath board is a pain.
Does anyone have something that they feel has made a big difference to the daily grind ?
Expecting there are regional differences in what help is given but I am pretty sure they will suggest a handle of some kind for the bed ( double divan shared with hubby ) maybe a perching stool ( which will probably be a nuisance due to my tiny kitchen )
Also I really can’t walk far at all now so don’t get to the shops with hubby and grandkids so maybe should think about wheelchair.
Any suggestions welcomed, thanks
