I haver been reading lots of posts and replies about people buying equipment for the home, e.g., things to raise their head up in bed. In South Tyneside we have a STAR centre which is run by the NHS and supplies free of charge equipment to people who need it to make their life easier in the home. I was at a breathing rehabilitation exercise session and a representative from STAR paid us a visit and showed us many pieces of equipment that could help. Among this I remember was Bed Raisers. Its worth asking your GP is if you think you would benefit from any equipment. Im sure South Tyneside is not unique in this service.
