Hi Folks

Been putting off getting help and trying to be as independant as possoble but a fall in the bedroom the another in the bathroom made me rethink. Had OT out today, she was brilliant, getting rails upstairs a rail on my bed and a battery operated bath lift.

    A good idea to get OT in. Yes, they are brilliant. Think of it as a means of retaining independence rather than losing it. As for the bath lift - do ensure the battery is fully charged every time. Mine doesn't retain the charge well so I have to leave it permanently plugged in and switched on. If I do that it's fine.

    Thanks for replies folks, going for an MRI at 6:20pm, hopefully will get results when I see Physio on 01/11 up to now they are saying its OA of the spine but my feet, hands and hips are also giving me some greif and a lot of inflammation. How do you find the bath lift, is it ok?
