    29 hrs a day would be for one person for 24 hrs (because I can't move the wheelchair they are willing to order on my own) and another for the other 5 hrs for transfers etc.

    Well my spasms would send me upside down on the ground/floor up to 7 times a day for some time now. Everyone who 'treated' them would try a few things then give up, so they got to that point.

    Scott, that's what I've been doing for the last 146 days... Very recently the government departments were shuffled around, so I'm really hoping the new minister of health does something to help!

    Thank you so much Cherie! I missed your post because it must have been posted while I was replying to others. She's right, things are different in each province and we are on completely opposite...

    Really? I'll definitely have to look into this!

    We have gotten the minister of health involved and even the premiers office. The minister of health didn't do anything and the premiers office...

    Scott right now I am being charged $48 a day to stay here. There is also another guy who has been here for about a year who has a powerchair, but nowhere to go. It's beyond stupid!

    At this point that is the only option that's left so I can get on with life. The process of being referred to Vancouver to look into that option will be starting hopefully soon. It will still take...

    No I haven't. I have contacted the CNIB though and an O&M instructor is willing to come in, but the management here don't know if they will let her work with me or not because she doesn't specialize...

    They already have, but the OT still claims she "doesn't have the expertise" and she is not going to do it.

    The closest thing we seem to have here is the patient care coordinator. I've been working with her the whole time, but she can just suggest things and has no power to make them happen.

    We have already gone to the local media, but haven't really tried social media yet (besides having a facebook group). That's not a bad idea and I'll try to get out there more on the Internet.

  18. Being Denied the Equipment I Need to Leave Rehab

    I'm not even sure if this is the right forum to post in or not, but it seems to fit better than the others because it is about equipment (or rather, lack of equipment).

    I travel a lot and my rule of thumb is to carry an extra two days supply. Then if a flight gets delayed or canceled I'm OK. I also spread them out so I have some in my carry-on bag and some in any...
