* did the dentist/eye doctor come to your home, or if not, how did you handle getting in and out of exam chair?

SOME DO PIVOT TRANSFERS (WITH A CAREGIVER, & SOMETIMES THE DOCTOR HELPS), OR BRING PORTABLE LIFTS, BUT I AM FORTUNATE: MY HUSBAND CAN LIFT ME, & I BALANCE WELL ENOUGH 2 SIT IN THEIR EXAM CHAIR, THOUGH SINCE MY W/C TILTS FAR BACK, THE DENTIST HAS OFFERED ME STAYING IN MY CHAIR (THOUGH I NEVER DO–I ONLY STAY IN MY W/C IN THE PHYSICIANS OFFICE). MY W/C ALSO ELEVATES, & THE EYE DOCTOR HAS ALSO OFFERED 2 STAY IN MY W/C, THOUGH I DON’T. MANY TESTS CAN BE DONE “MANUALLY.”

ALSO, U CAN PHONE AHEAD, & VISIT THE OFFICE FOR ACCESSIBILITY. THEY USUALLY TRY TO BE VERY HELPFUL.
