Hi all , My sister in law have now been off work for several weeks now and has been referred to a specialist knee surgeon who has confirmed she requires a full knee replacement and the other knee is not good either which is scheduled for Jan 2019 . Whilst this is a good way forward to alleviate the immense pain she is experiencing . I have concerns about her welfare after she leaves hospital as she lives in a maisonette which has no toilet upstairs and the kitchen downstairs .
I have asked her to make contact now with her council and also social services to see what support she can receive, but all that has been offered is an assessment when she comes home .
Can anyone suggest anywhere else that she can try ? at the moment she has to slide down the stairs on her backside to the toilet and kitchen and when she wants to sleep then has to pull herself up the stairs to bed as she cannot stand or bend on the problem legs
To add to the problem we live in the midlands and she lives in London
Any help or suggestions appreciated
