funding for a Bakare bed

sarah_daviessarah_davies Member Posts: 9 Connected
Hi. I am single, but have a double bed and super kingsize bedding as my ataxic cerebral palsy affecting mainly affects my arm control, and turning etc in bed needs a lot of space.

I'm now (maybe as I am getting older) finding it increasingly difficult to get out of bed, and also to stop myself ending up too near to the edge of the bed. I am alone at nights, so falling asleep out of bed would mean spending the night on the floor.

I have tried a double BaKare bed and found that it met all of my needs, but was too expensive for the trust fund (a trade / profession related one) who I approached.

If anybody could help me by telling me of possible sources of funding, I would be extremely grateful.

Many thanks
Sarah
