Recently lost use of right leg. Any tips that may help around the house?

I've recently lost the use of my right leg. I have Spina Bifida but have always managed fine, being very independent. I live with my partner, work, drive, do housework, shopping, all the normal day to day things everyone does. I have always walked round the house with one walking stick, but am now forced to use my old elbow crutches which I'm finding very difficult, awkward and cumbersome. I also can't put my wheelchair in or take it out of the car boot now so am having to rely on work colleagues every morning and evening, as well as my partner in order to do any shopping, which I hate!
Has anyone any ideas on any kind of equipment I might be able to use to help around the house? I can barely stand to put the kettle on now! Also, any tips for a small person who finds it almost impossible to put my RGK wheelchair into the car myself?
Many thanks,
