Fab news chuck.

Are you going to buy a chair or get one on Motability.?

Can I offer some advice, but you dont have to take it.

My current chair has a reclining back and tilting seat and leg rests that raise too.

I could`ve bought one for 2.5k, but thought Motability was a good idea. It wasnt. By the time the 3 year lease is up, I will have paid around 4k for it! And worst of all, I dont get to keep it…so I am hoping wheelchair services will offer me an alternative.

I have an assessment next week and the lease ends in January.

Enjoy your new chariot hun!

I don’t know yet Sue, was too much in shock to ask! Lol but he said I’ll be getting all the paperwork in about 7 days xx

Awe thanx Trace ad thankyou for being there- you have kept me sane in my most pessimistic moments! xxx

Like it! ^^

No! I actually just had a call from welfare rights the day before about arranging a day to come see me about going through my case! I’m so relieved won’t have to go through all that now xxx

Oh they are - he said they were backdating it to last September, which is even earlier than I thought they would but that’s when my DLA ended so they go from that apparently!
