Wet Floor Shower 2
I recently had the pleasure of assisting a 99 year old local lady to get a wet floor shower fitted in her home. This cheerful, independent lady lives in her own home and had been unable to use the bath fully for some time. Following a referral to Care & Repair from her Occupational Therapist, I visited the client and her family to go through the paperwork and discuss contractors for the work.
Quote requests were issued to two local contractors who are registered Trusted Traders and experienced at carrying out Care & Repair works.
The client was involved throughout the process and having confirmed she was happy to proceed, I secured the Care & Repair grant funding and issued formal quote acceptance to the chosen contractor.
The shower room was installed shortly before the client’s 100th birthday and during my recent post-inspection, she told me it was of wonderful benefit to her and so much easier to use than the bath. She was very pleased with the contractor and their quality of workmanship.
This is a fine example of how Care & Repair can assist people to continue to live independently in their home, at any age.
