She will be having a MAT Evaluation on the 9th August and then she will organise some companies to come out and trial some wheelchairs with her.
She will then of course approach organisations to fund the wheelchair, which as usual takes a long time until you actually get approved and then receive the piece of equipment. If her step and rail for the toilet is anything to go on...that basic design took 1 year! Wheelchairs wait time can be around 18-24 months.
In the meantime, they will lend us one of their wheelchairs.
Strange that she contacted me about the wheelchair as I have been thinking along the same lines lately, one example is that Violet has had alot of kids comment about whether she is a baby still as she is still in a stroller. Even though it's a special needs stroller, kids just can't seem to look past the fact it is exactly that...a stroller.
