Ms Thomson had a small and unusable bathroom, as a result of ongoing problems with balance and mobility, which consisted of a bath, pedestal basin and WC.
The confined suite was made to feel even more claustrophobic with space given to an airing cupboard and a handful of DIY adaptations in the form of a washing seat and a raised height toilet frame.
Projected managed by her Son, Mr Thomson contacted us as the go to experts with regards to creating a safe and accessible bathroom adaptation for his elderly mother. Happy for us to lead the renovation works, More Ability surveyor and designer, Andy, talked them both through the options based on the bathing problems and requirements.
Proposing a future proofed design that would offer long-lasting safety, regardless of circumstances, Andy delivered an inspired solution that was suitable for the needs of Ms Thomson, today, tomorrow and many years to come.
Installing a wet floor shower with a half-height screen, the assisted showering solution was established the most cost effective option should any conditions deteriorate in the future which required carer assisted showering or bathing.
Coupled with anti-slip safety vinyl, a raised comfort height WC with drop down rail and a standard basin and pedestal, Andy made use of the obtrusive airing cupboard having fit it out with a bespoke shelving unit, all in which meant the safe and accessible shower room was the epitome of a future proofed adaptation.
“Very happy and satisfied with all aspect of the purchase and installation - THANK YOU!”
