Default oocho update and what to do??

I posted about a month ago about Oocho breaking his leg. Unfortunately, though the bone has healed he has ligament damage in his foot which according to the vet isn`t going to heal. He`s not going to be able to return to his cage. I`m heartbroken.

He`s 11 and a half and hasn`t been able to fly for about 7 years. He spends most evenings on my shoulder eating off my shirt. He`s eating ok so that`s good.

Right now he`s in a plastic insect box about 30 cm long by 18 wide. I want to get him a bigger home but I found a previous thread writing not to use a glass cage because of health reasons. I found a huge glass cage which could be may a serviceable home about 3 times bigger than his current home.

I`m not sure what to do and could use some advice.
