    Do you see a doctor about your health problems?

    I'd probably start with your health care professional to see if you can get a referral to an occupational therapist to find out exactly what your needs are.  Also, don't forget that anything you buy that's classed as a 'mobility aid' (including certain beds and mattresses) is often VAT exempt. 😊
