I can’t understand why things needed to help people with various disabilities seem to be so expensive!
We have just had to finance the construction of wheelchair access to our house, after years of waiting for the local council and OT Bureau, only to be informed by them that our property was ‘unadaptable’, and they would not provide a grant.
I have had MS for 15 years, and as it is progressing we are facing the fact of needing a downstairs bedroom and wetroom facility which, again we will have to finance, by re-mortgaging.
Just to top all this, now we have the access sorted I was looking to buy a ramp to get over the door frame, and I could not believe the price of them, £100-200.
Has anyone else come across similar situations? It almost feels that as well as dealing with your disability, you become an easy target for companies producing aids to charge excessive amounts for these items.
That’s got that out of my system.
