Mrs Boucher, Stanningley, Leeds, West Yorkshire – bathing is once again become an enjoyable experience

24 March 2016

Problem:

Mrs Boucher had a small square shaped, fully wall & floor tiled bathroom, consisting of a wall-to-wall enclosed bath, pedestal basin and low rise WC. The existing suite was fast becoming unusable with Mrs Boucher no longer enjoying bathing as of a result of the stress it caused.

Having struggled for a number of years a series of DIY bathroom adaptation accessories had been incorporated in order to help reduce the risk. These included a bath bench, to help Mrs Boucher when getting in and out and a horse shaped washing stool for accessible cleaning. Even though these items had served a purpose the bathroom was quickly becoming extremely hazardous to Mrs Boucher’s health meaning more thorough changes had to be made.

Solution:

More Ability Surveyor & Designer Nigel Dawson really took the time to understand Mrs Boucher’s worries, concerns and areas of struggle before proposing a solution to her bathing problems. Given space was limited and bathing was impossible Nigel suggested converting the bathroom to a safe & practical shower room which would eradicate all present and future problems.

The idea was very well received however it was clear from the off that a Wet Floor Shower was not a desired outcome. Working with Mrs Boucher Nigel suggested a bath replacement, level access shower tray with half height doors and a curtain to allow for self or assisted showering.

Outcome:

Following initial discussions the completed safe and practical level access shower room was the perfect solution to help overcome Mrs Boucher’s bathing problems. The converted bathroom now allowed and facilitated a safe, enjoyable, trouble & stress free bathing experience that Mrs Boucher wanted, needed and fully deserved.

To compliment the new shower solution Nigel incorporated a full wall length fitted vanity unit which housed the modern basin and high rise WC. The room was finished off in a beige mosaic tiled to all walls and slip resistant vinyl to the floor - for Mrs Boucher bathing had once again become an enjoyable experience.

What mrs boucher said about more ability:

“Very happy with the work – great job done.”
