What families say about Newlife
When the chair was delivered Laina was left alone to get accustomed to the chair. After some time of being very quiet, her grandad went to see if she was alright and he found she had raised herself up and was looking in all the wall cupboards in the kitchen as she had never been able to reach them before. The chair has given Laina increased independence. Allowed her to join her sister and friends in the kitchen to bake as she can now reach the higher surface heights. She will be allowed to take the chair into her new secondary school in September.
The provision of this wheelchair allows him to access all aspects of life, acedemic and social with a degree of independence. He is Acorns Young Ambassador and this wheelchair allows him to be so pro active. All of the Newlife people are working together; the application was so straightforward and much quicker than we expected.
What can I say - he loves being in it, it has given him a completely new perspective for play and watching. The other children can get closer to him now and he is really integrated into their day too.
