For anyone who is having real problems with their downward gaze, (like my Tony) I can highly recommend the prism glasses which were mentioned in the last publication of PSP Matters. Tony is now able to see to feed himself and even reads a little since we acquired these "odd" looking glasses. However, "odd" or not, they certainly have helped Tony. Really wierd how they work. When you put them on and look straight ahead, you can see your navel!! LOL Not a pretty sight, but it helps to prove how effective they are.
I telephoned the PSPA last Thursday and they arrived free of charge, on Saturday. It's worth the phone call just to try them, but if they aren't suitable or you no longer require them all you need to do is return them so someone else might benefit.
Just wanted to share this bit of information with everyone just in case you missed the item in the magazine.
We're having a bit of a tough time at the moment, but we're getting help from various agencies, etc. so we're "SORT OF" managing!!! Too many issues to get off my chest at the moment, and Tony is due back from Day Centre in a couple of hours, so I'm going to have myself a little nap to re-charge my very worn out 'batteries'.
Love to everyone and take care.
