Welcome to the community!
I assume that your GP is already aware of the balance
difficulties you mention but if not, or if they are worse than previously
please do speak with a doctor to ensure they are aware of what is going on. Balance
issues need to be taken seriously and sometimes require a medical intervention.
With regards to getting adaptations or equipment at home, as
@Teddylo has already stated, you will require a needs assessment by an
Occupational Therapist (OT) from your local authority. If you are struggling to
find the contact details for the correct team your GP Receptionist should be
able to assist you or alternatively if you feel comfortable telling me which
council area you live in I can look the information up for you.
Unfortunately, @Teddylo experience of having to wait for an
assessment is not unusual. So, in the meantime please be careful not to take
any unnecessary risks as balance difficulties can so easy lead to serious
injuries from falling.
