It must be very frustrating @MatthewB

I’ve just had a quick look on Google and there are “all terrain walkers” available for off road walking. They have larger wheels and thicker tyres than the standard ones so should be able to roll over roots and rough ground.

I completely understand your frustration @MatthewB

Mum and I love the countryside And woods. In the end I bought her an all terrain wheelchair. It has mountain bike wheels and can manage the woods.

You can get ones that are pushed by your family or electric ones that you drive yourself.

I know using one may feel difficult for your independence - but if it gets you outside and into the places you enjoy it may bring you pleasure.

Well done @MatthewB - that walk sounds amazing! Like you I love to walk in the countryside - it’s so relaxing,

I do hope ur pain gets better soon.

Is there anyone in the family who also enjoys walking and you can go together? Rather than feeling like they are ‘looking after you’ - could you make it enjoyable family time? Perhaps plan some traps you want to put down, or take some food to enjoy together?? Maybe you can teach some of the younger family members your skills being outside? I bet you have a lot you can teach them with your experience!

My name is Rachel, Matthew. Sdmhred were some random letters I choose before I knew I could trust people here.

I’m glad to be friends with you here. It’s so interesting to hear about your life in the US.

or something like this?


you wont be ble to carry much with broken limbs
My 93 year old Mam uses one of these. She doesn’t have dementia but does have mobility problems. She loves it. She even uses it with a chopping board to prepare veggies as she cannot stand foe long periods, and will use it to bring her meal to the table or if she’s watching tv use it as a tray table. It has made such a difference.
