Also at £2,000 it is pretty expensive, does anyone know if there is any funding available from anywhere, local Social Services have said no


Hi Coggie,

We understand that it's been quite a while since your enquiry, but we just wanted to post a message on here to say if you do still need help with seating or any other equipment for your wife then we're more than happy to help.

We recently posted a blog on chairs for people with Huntington's Disease - you can read it here: https://www.yorkshirecareequipment.c...gtons-disease/

We also carry-out free no-obligation home assessments for people like yourselves so we can take a look at what you need and discuss the options. We also have a charity database that we're happy to provide you with that might help with any possible funding.

Get in touch if you're still needing some more options. We're sure we could get something sorted for you.

Kind Regards,

The Yorkshire Care Equipment Team
