However, we have certainly been busy as we have had a lot of building work done and all our adaptations have now been completed. We now have a level entrance into our front door, two ceiling hoists (one downstairs, and one upstairs), a through-floor lift, a bath trolley and a special armchair. We also now have some outdoor space where Jess can sit in the back garden.
I cannot explain what a difference all this has made to our lives. I was struggling so much with lifting Jess - in and out of her wheelchair, up and down the stairs, in and out of the bath etc. Having all this equipment has really enhanced our lives, and it makes everything we have to do as part of our daily routine so much safer, for both us and Jess.
