My husbands 98 year old grandmother has had to be moved to a nursing home ( which she is not happy about) and my father in law only bought the chair in October and she wouldn't use it so its in as new condition, they paid £795.00 for it from haven mobility Cwmbran

this is the chair but the material is brown weave.

They need it sold and collected this week as they have to give the keys back to the council ( who only gave them 3 days to clear the flat to start with but after lots of complaining they have allowed us 5 days now) we've now emptied most of the flat and have a guy coming Tuesday to take the rest of the furniture but told him not to take the chair
any ideas would be great here guys,
we've tried the nursing home and the day centre in the estate where she lived and no one wants it not even if it was given to them.
i cant list it on ebay or on here as i dont have a photo of it ,as she lived 45 miles from us and i forgot to take the camera yesterday and wont be going back until thursday, my father in law is meeting the house clearance guy.

theres a cheek, i was getting rid of a few wardrobes last year and offered them to foothold for free, as long as they could pick them up. they were going to charge me £25 for picking them up even tho there about 2 miles down the road. and would have sold them and made a profit. people these days lol

i know its disgraceful what some companies will do, thing is where they bought it from sell second hand ones too ( father in law just told me) and as nan had only sat in the chair once they could have sold it on with no problem.
oh well i'll keep googling it..lol


so the second hand ones they sell are from people who give them back for free, ermmm they aint good very good values have they

yep this is what my father in law is saying, think i might phone them Monday myself.
all these pensioners giving the chairs back after paying hundreds for them, its disgusting. as it is now my father in law has to find over £100 a week extra to pay for the home. as nans pension doesnt cover it


why is he having to pay for a nursing home, has she been assessed to be needing a nursing home rather then a residentual

vinyl you need to gte this checked out, as i know my next door neighbour is in full time nursing care and i think the fees are like £1000 a week, she has her own home, now empty, and family, and nobody pays anything all her fees are covered by the goverment as it is full time NURSING care


get googling and make sure the assessment has been done properly, if this person needs full time nursing care it should not have to be paid for by family members

I was looking for one for my Grandfather recently, they are worth very little second hand, not entirely sure why. I used gumtree to look but decided just to get him a cushion instead.

I'd try Gumtree, talking to the manager of a sheltered housing building/the local help the aged/shopmobility/mobility aid shops - they might let you put an advert up or know of someone who needs one.

If all else fails, you could try a 3 day advert on eBay.
