Hello all at talking point. Thanks for the advice about contacting Social services, which my sister did for me today. I want to bring my husband home from care home and the SS will start the (probably lengthy) procedure of getting assessments etc. I have been informed that my request for a special needs bed will be a long wait as hospital discharges get priority. I do appreciate this but as I feel I have so little time left with Ben that I am wondering if there are any charitable organisations that offer a loan of adjustable bed and air mattress. I don't have a clue where to start and would love to hear from anyone with the info that I need. Ben was in the Royal Navy for 25 years so if anyone has experience of the charities linked to the Armed Forces, that may be a good place to start. Please help me if you can.
