    Hi and welcome 

    We offer advice and support to disabled people 

    Do you live in social housing ? 

    I recommend getting a care needs assessment through gov website to have your housing needs assessed 

    You can also speak to social services or your gp 

    Just a note f8r security reasons we do not allow personal details like phone numbers to be posted for your own safety 

    Admin will remove the details for you

    Hello @boots1234

    Welcome to the community, thank you for joining us and introducing yourself. 

    It seems as though things are difficult at the moment and I'm sorry about that, do you have any support from a loved one who lives with you, or are you on your own? 

    I wonder if a mobility aid would help you with navigating around your home, particularly with the stairs, have you ever discussed with your Gp what could be done to help with your mobility?

    You could also refer yourself for a social care needs assessment through your local authority, has that ever been mentioned as an option for you? 

    As mentioned above, in accordance with our community guidelines we do not allow the sharing of personal details such as full names or phone numbers, and therefore I have removed those from your post.
