transfer-copy-1.gifThere are some aids that help independent living in everyday life. I thought I 'd list a few of those which help me. To start with, I have a electric bed which can be be moved up which helps when I want to sit up and where I can get my legs to move up as well. I have a bed grab rail which I use to get me into position to get out of bed into my wheelchair. I also have a transfer board to move from the bed into the chair. 


My personal assistant comes in most mornings to help me get ready. My bathroom is a wet room, I have a shower chair . She helps me wash my hair and shower, dress and get a cup of tea and breakfast if I have time before going to the market stall.


Its lucky I am self employed because it takes more time to get ready than other people. I can't exactly jump in the shower;-)
