Question
Wheelchair friendly stair gates
Are there any stair gates which still allow a wheelchair over them and don't obscure much of the door way itself?

Question
Having MS and not always able to move child away
I've read about the best ways to deal with your child, which in my current case with a one year old, is to pick them up so to move them away from where they shouldn't be, which is most of the time at the moment. What can/should I say or do to me avoid having to get up and physically move him?

Question
I am looking for a car seat that would enable one handed fastening, anyone know what to look at.
I take care of my grandson often and for long periods of time. I am unable to get out and about with him, on my own. This is because securing the straps on his car seat is a real problem; due to my disability I can only use one hand.

Question
Can I get any kind of help after surgery?
I am a single parent with little to no support with raising my child. I'm currently going through the process of getting my osgood schlatters disease fixed (fingers crossed) but this may require me to have invasive surgery on both knees. Which will make looking after my 3 year old a little, impossible. I'm aware that the hospital may offer me support afterwards for myself. But I'm wanting to know if there's any help out there that covers the care of my child that I won't be able to provide. This is my main concern. Or would I have to rely on family? (which I have very little left of and no one is able to take the time out of their lives to provide the help).
