Hi, wow! I thought we`d spend a lot!
But I stopped counting when we had an overdraft!
ve bought 6 wheelchairs, beds and mattresses, walkers, french doors and decked access in and out of house, wet room, commodes, 5 new bathroom and wet floors and another is imminent, constant repairs to doors and decor when I gouge em with my wheels, bedding, a washer
cos I wear em out and oh the list goes on and on. Then there`s the cost of adapting a mini bus into a camper…3 times!
Yes, I do ask for help from OT and Housing Adaptations now.
We were means tested for the hoist and there was a shortfall, which the MSS generously helped with.
As a general rule, OTs will supply some things free of charge, but if a job costs over £1k, it has to go to DFG and that is mean tested.
Yes, expensive life with a disability, I know!
