(Lee, one of the adaptations team, fitting a walk-in shower)
If you, or anyone in your household, struggles to get around your home, is disabled or has a visual or hearing impairment, you may be able to get help.
From simple things like bath seats to big changes like fitting a stairlift, there’s lots of help available that could make your life easier.
We call these big changes “adaptations” and they’ve made a massive difference to many tenants’ lives – just like Mrs Comer, who sent us this lovely thank you card:
We’ve installed wet rooms for residents who struggle getting in the bath. One tenant is 99-years-old! Her son tells us she now looks forward to a shower every day and is “squeaky clean”.
We fitted an over-head shower for one tenant who suffers from seizures. This has made a huge difference - before this, she needed her young daughter to keep an eye on her while she had a bath.
Other adaptations we can make include things like widening doors and fitting ramps for wheelchairs, putting in extra toilets and installing lifts, hoists and handrails.
