Went for my wheelchair assessment today. It’s in a new premises operated by Opcare Mobility/NHS.
I was seen by an NHS physio and a Wheelchair therapist. They were so kind, helpful, interested and just nice lasses!
I did feel a bit daft, having been under them before I got my current chair, which as most of you know, is on Motability.
But I needn’t have worried, as they said it is their duty to ensure I am not without a suitable wheelchair.
Just to bring anyone up to date with what’s what…the 3 year lease on my chair ends in January and I was aghast when I realized I have to give it back! And this after paying out nearly 4 k!!!
The £102 a month I pay, will be a big help towards heating bills.
Anyroad I tried a new chair…a mid wheel drive Sunrise Quickie Salsa. I loved it and will hopefully be getting one around December.
I urge anyone thinking of getting a wheelchair in Motability, to study the cost involved.
