Occupational Therapy Advice and Information
Answer the question below for helpful advice and information...
I am unable to manage the stairs and worry about my future:
Do you become breathless when climbing up and downstairs and have to stop on the stairs to catch your breath and often feel unable to continue?
Do you find it difficult to lift your feet up onto each step of the stairs?
Does the effort of climbing the stairs feel like a mountain that is impossible to conquer?
If the provision of rails has not resolved your problems it may be time to look at additional support and provision of adaptations to enable you to continue to get up and downstairs to access essential bedroom bathroom and toilet facilities and remain living independently in your own home.
