I have just come back from a weekend away with my family, and have come to the conclusion that I should start using a wheelchair. I use a stick and my husbands arm for support normally. We were only out on Saturday for 1/2 and hour and my legs were awful, and were giving way all of the time. After stopping to sit 4 times, we ended up going back to the Hotel. I was gutted and feel so guilty that I am spoiling things for my family They said it made no difference to them etc, but it is still hard.
How do I go about getting a chair? Do I buy one or do I get one from Social Services? Not sure what procedure is. I have looked on Halfords site and they have some good chairs at amazing prices. They also have a lot of mobility aids for just 99p (blue badge holders, pill containers and walking sticks).
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
