Wet Floor Shower 1
This lovely wet floor shower room was recently completed for a retired couple who live a few miles outside of Dumfries. An OT referral was sent to Care and Repair in the wife’s name however both of them were finding getting in and out of the bath difficult. During the first visit we had a nice chat and completed the necessary paperwork. I suggested some contractors for the work and we agreed on two local plumbers to go out and quote. Once the quotes were received a preferred contractor was chosen, the grant funds were secured and works instructed.
The clients are “over the moon” with the finished works and couldn’t speak more highly of the contractor. They are both finding the shower so easy to use and wish they’d got it done years ago! They feel their risk of falling whilst showering is greatly reduced, aided by some grab rails and a shower stool which will be delivered soon. A portable half-height carer screen was provided as part of the works and this is safely tucked away should the time come in the future when they may require some assistance with showering.
