After debating for ages, I have just invested in a stairflit and a power-trike. Picked up the trike today from Team Hybrid and it is fantastic - only had a little go on it but it was great. I am so looking forward to being able to go on country “walks” with my family, as we used to.
Thanks to the people who replied to my recent post on stairlfits - as a result I contacted an independent and have them coming to make the final measurements tomorrow - then in a few weeks I will have my stairlift and can reclaim the first floor of my house. It will be just great to be able to go upstairs independently. I am so grateful for the advice I got on here - as a result of contacting that shop I got a top make of stairlift at over £one thousand less than the manufacturer had quoted.
it is nice to have these two things to help make this horrid condition a bit more bearable. Quite a bit poorer but as someone on here said recently, you can’t take it with you!
