So pleased you’re home, nothing like your own bed and own choice of food. Hope your recovery continues well.

Hi, thanks ljc for the information. It varies what different councils offer. I did my own assessment of aids and equipment that I needed as usually do this for others as part of my job!
I wanted a large toilet frame but got a commode. I now have 2 Zimmer frames and mostly walk without as hold onto walls and furniture. I’m trying to get off my own armchair and mostly manage to.
I’ve considered getting a perching stool and need to self purchase but sitting is so painful so probably won’t get one. Plus lack of space.
Will get some hand rails put up in bathroom and front door steps via equipment service.

Now tested negative for Covid.
Gradually building up strength although my oxygen levels drop too low when do any moving around.
Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and support
