First a little of my background.
I posted here a while ago about getting help for my hubby and myself.
I was advised to apply for AA (Adult Assistance) in the UK.
I filled out a mess of forms (loads and loads) and finally heard back. They gave me it. It was at the lowest level but everything helps right? I also had another adult place bring a perch stool (wow this has made a big difference for me) and two raised toilet seats and stands. All free, so I hit the jackpot there. They also arrange for me to be assessed by and OC Nurse (Occupational Health) Lovely girl. After she had done she recommended a stair lift and a wet room conversion. She said we could get a grant for it and gave me all the numbers to phone. I then filled out more forms. Ug!!!
I finally heard back from them. They had granted us the 'Grant. Yippee!!
Now here is the warning.
If we accepted it, we would have to pay the first £3,500.00. We have no savings and have been getting and dealing with all our own problems, until now. This is the first time I have asked for help.
Sooooooooo today, I phoned my bank and am in the process of arranging a bank loan. Double UG! So much more stuff to go through to get it.
Not yet finished.
When the bank loan is sorted AND we move onto the next part. I have to get two quotes for the stair lift and two quotes for the bathroom. So more stuff to do.
So beware if you manage to get help, there may be strings attached.
