Thank you for the mobility advice, seems like a scooter will not be practical as I thought. when I spoke to the PSPA care advisor she said NHS would not give a wheelchair until he could no longer walk, but maybe F is at that stage now. i will look into what NHS can provide us with, I guess whatever it is will not go in the boot of my small car as easily as the one the hospice has loaned. I cant believe how quickly things are progressing, last October we went on holiday to Looe in Cornwall, it was about a 20-25 minute downhill walk from our accommodation into Looe village, F could do that, walk around Looe and walk back again!
This wretched illness, I guess I'm going to be looking to change cars as well as move house!
Lots of Love
