Have you contacted NHS Wheelchair Services about getting a powerchair?
If you need to use a powerchair at home due to hand or arm weakness and can’t cope with a manual wheelchair
at home you will qualify for an NHS powerchair. This is issued on prescription - on loan - for 5 years and is serviced
by the NHS service provider. If you need a new one due to changes in your condition one will be given.
There is no cost to you at all! FREE.
This powerchair was made to measure and took 6 weeks to arrive. I test drove it at home first during the assessment. So I had one trip to NHS Wheelchair Services to talk about my mobility needs, then the OT brought a powerchair for me to try at home- this was the Invacare Fox, it was too wide for my doors, next they brought the Quickie Salsa M2 this was perfect for me.
This is my powerchair: Quickie Salsa M2
It is narrow and easy to turn and get through my narrow doors at home. I love it. I also got a new manual wheelchair Invacare Action 3.
I also bought ramps for the car which I paid for myself so and can take it out and about. I also got ramps fitted for the back door and front gate at home which was done by the Adult Social Care.
Worth asking about.
