Charities that could loan a power wheelchair
Hello to all here.my husband was diagnmosed two and a half years ago with guillium barre syndrome which takes 2 - 3 years to get out of his system, he was in hospital for 13 months and has been home for 14 months now, he has a manuel wheelchair which is very hard to use by himself so i take him for short walks as he weighs 19 stone it is hard for me to push him far, i wondered if the3re are any charities that could loan a power wheelchair to him so i could take him out for a brak, would like to be able to take him to the seaside for a short break but wouldnt be able to push him around for any length of time due to the weight, he is 74 and i am 63. Thank you for any help you may be able to give us.
