Simple in-house alterations can make all the difference to your daily life and include:
Also consider the installation of a wet room or a walk-in shower.
Wet rooms can provide the most stylish, contemporary solution to your bathing difficulties. They can be suitable for any size of bathroom and provide an unrestricted showering experience. Whether you are wheelchair bound or find the step into a tub as a barrier, this is the choice for you as the floor is the same level throughout the room. Also it will have slip-resistance safety flooring and will be a 100% waterproof area.
A walk-in shower is increasingly becoming the preferred option for many, especially the elderly. Many use a sit down shower version with no door, with easy access that can be further designed for wheelchair access.
When installing your wet room or walk-in shower small additions will make all the difference such as stools, chairs, horizontal or vertical rails, and swivel bath seats or stools.
Before making your final decision on any of the above installations seek advice from an occupational therapist about the changes you would like to make to your home. Your local council should be able to let you have an appropriate contact.
