Did some groceries today and struggled a bit doing groceries and getting my chair in and out of the car. I’m thankful to have access to a better OT and vendor sales person this time around when ordering my new chair. I’m happy that there are procedures and programs in place for people who need it. I do believe that these procedures need to be updated and the process needs to be updated so that there’s a faster turn around for people who need their equipment in a more timely fashion. My chair is too big and it definitely sucks but if your chair gets too small and you have more reasons of why getting a chair sooner is important, then it needs to be faster! — on another note I’m also disappointed that there are others who don’t really need to be taking resources from others. Whether it be adp, para transport, etc. Don’t abuse programs people. Changes need to be made and I’m hoping one day I can help make those happen! #changes#adp#ontario#sci#para#tilite#permobil#tilitewheelchair#accessible#accessibility#OT#ottawa#motionspecialties

We're well into October now, and even though the world won't go Christmas crazy until after Bonfire night we like to get a headstart! So, welcome to our Christmas series. See something you'd love to unwrap Christmas morning? Tag a friend or family member and hope they'll get the hint! See something you NEED for the Christmas season? Treat yourself! Remember it's best to order by the start of December to guarentee postage by Christmas - and who doesn't love to be organised!

Three things that are EO.
Wholesale price for everyone.
No more high hidden profits - full transparency and honesty.
It's not another entitled small local business, it's a new way of looking at how food could, and should be sold - to benefit anyone's situation.
Affordability - and luxury - are two sides of the same coin.
High value purchases are often made more accessible through the likes of finance, repayments, installments or even part-exchanges.
Soon you'll be able to trade your skills, your time, your knowledge and almost any currency for organic food.
You'll be able to make it as flexible as you need it.
It's your service.
A good lifestyle shouldn't cost you the earth.

Trying to Make it: Everyday Challenges of Living with a Disability in Society
Take a look at my blog which provides a deep insight of what it takes for people with disabilities to make it in society.
A few a months ago as I was doing couple of articles through my curiosity how it can help disabled individuals to have a success dating. Although disabled women are more likely than disabled men to find find their match. Although I did find a blog from someone who is disabled wrote his discontent with Tinder, however my blog on Wordpress is not about romance and dating but about the challenges that disabled individuals face. I talked about that we as individuals have to work harder than anyone in order to make it in society. As I pointed out some key points, I looked at the disabled and disabled perspectives. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) that meets the needs of disabled individuals and prohibits discrimination, however discrimination in employment still going on even with a degree. Also, not every location or business are accessible. Mainly being independent is a priority to show the world what we are of. Independence meaning taking risks and being confident. I wrote my blog without showing negatives but neither trying to sugarcoat without hiding any struggles. I wish I could have written more information, I might have missed things that I could have talked about here and on WordPress. Here's the link to my blog on what I talked about and it has more insight of the challenges of disabled individuals.
Bed Transfer with a sliding board
🛌 ➡️ ♿
We wanted to show you the bed-to-wheelchair transfer with a #slidingboard for such a long time! Here it is!
Michas father build Micha a slightly shorter Sliding Board than the ones you can buy and use for car transfers. So it's easier for Micha to reach the other end and handle it. With this Micha (after much training and me spotting so he wouldn't fall forward) he can now easily transfer to and from bed all on his own. (no spotting needed anymore)
We also have an electrical adjustable #homecarebed base
so Micha can change the height of his bed to easily slide in or out of bed. As you can see we build a normal bed frame around it so it wouldn't be so ugly, and also, because we really wanted a double bed again, after I was sleeping in a single bed next to Micha's #nursingcarebed for more then a year and we could never fall a sleep together! Now Michas half of the bed (well, the base) is adjustable, standing "free" in the wooden bedframe, and mine is just a normal slated frame lying fixed in the wooden bedframe.
I'm sooo happy to finally have a "normal" shared bed again!! 🙏🏼
. ➡️ How do you manage the bed transfers and if you're a couple - do you have a shared bed? .
