Where to get hold of a Wheelchair?

Anybody know where I can hire or borrow a wheelchair for an elderly visiting relative until next Tuesday??

Any ideas would be seriously greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Mike

Your local hospital OPD should be able to point you inthe right direction.  There are hire shops too but I have no idea what they are called in French. 

A wheelchair is a 'fauteil roulant' though.

Ask at your local pharmacy, there is bound to be a supplier close at hand - you're looking for "un fauteuil roulant" in case your dictionary isn't handy.

Handy hint: don't try it on cobbles - the passenger is guaranteed not to like it. Oops.

there used to be a place dealing with medical appliance at the beginning of Boulevard Lech Walesa, in Nice, round the corner from boulevard carnot, going toward the port; I hope they are still there and do rentals
