What you think...
I called DLF's Helpline as I was finding it difficult to drive following my hip replacement operation. DLF information helped me to decide which mobility scooter was the most suitable for me. Then once I had my scooter, DLF information helped me to find suppliers of suitable clothing to protect me from all weathers - information that I was unable to find anywhere else
