    Hi Jano,

    Welcome to the community. I'm sorry to hear that you're having difficulties with your mobility. Are you getting support at home?

    Best wishes
    Debbie

    Hi Jano,

    Maybe I can help find some organisations for you.
    Are you in contact with your Adult Social Care department at your local council? They would be able to assess you at home to see if there is any help they can provide. They can also arrange for an Occupational Therapist to come and assess you for aids, adaptations or equipment that will help you manage better at home.

    Are you in receipt of any benefits such as ESA or DLA/PIP?

    Kind regards
    Debbie
