Suggestions from the community:

Mobility

  • Small wheelchair friendly van
  • Handling belt to keep someone from falling
  • Wheelchair
  • Mobility scooter – mostly for shopping
  • U-Step 2 https://attainability.co.uk/u-step/: perfect for maintaining some mobility and independence. I got it from the neurology team. It doesn’t run away with me. When I let go of the handles, the breaks are on. (Extra stability). The seat means I can rest when I need to. I can only walk short distances.
  • Crutches
  • Scooot https://www.fireflyfriends.com/uk/scooot

 

Around the house

  • Hoist
  • Shower chair
  • Handle on wall for getting out of the shower – nice black and silver one
  • Shower stool
  • Non-slip shower mat
  • Bed Rail
