"I've lost my confidence to walk outside"
Posted by grvn22 (as ),
I get the rainbow girls three days a week to help me with my shower and get dressed. Everything is alright, they are always very obliging. If I’m not well and don’t want a shower then I don’t have to and they’ll ask if they can do anything else instead.
I’ve got lots of family to help at weekends and to take me shopping. I need this because I’ve lost my confidence to walk outside. I had a heart attack and stroke 2 years ago. I had to learn to walk again as was in hospital for four months. I used to go for physio at Davidson hospital, it was really helpful but I feel my walking has now got worse. I’ve had a few falls recently when I’ve had to press my alarm button to get someone to come and help. I bought a walker to help me but my daughter thinks I walk too far away from it and I feel quite nervous when I use it.
