My daughter who has MS applied for a power chair recently. She was assessed and then a few weeks later a nice man came back with a chair for her to try. This was a huge, heavy clunking thing. ( my daughter is 5’3" ) She asked if she could get a voucher towards a light weight folding power chair which we could put in our boot.
Could not believe that she was told that they don’t do a voucher scheme but we should get a larger car with a ramp !!! So instead of giving her £500 towards a power chair she can use everywhere we would have to fork out a huge amount on a new car or if she comes to us has to use a manual chair and be pushed which she hates. . Can anyone make sense of this Needless to say we helped her out and she now has an amazing nippy power chair.
