An accessible wetroom for N & L's dad
When people go to visit family during the holidays, it often becomes clear how much older family member’s needs have changed throughout the year and how unsafe their homes have become.
This is exactly what happened to N and L.
Back in 2019, N and L went to visit L's dad for Christmas. It soon became very clear that things that had once been easy for her dad had now become increasingly difficult and unsafe and he was now finding it very difficult to get to and use the bathroom.
N and L ended up staying much longer than Christmas, and eventually moved in to look after him in his own home long-term. Together they also began looking for a more suitable home where they could all live more comfortably.
They recently found a bungalow that worked for them all and, with Fine & Able’s help, they have been renovating one of the bedrooms to include an accessible wetroom for dad. They have included a wash and dry toilet, rails that can be added as and when required, and a shower seat. They have also added wide sliding doors that can fit a wheelchair through from the bedroom to make things easier now and in the future.
It has made a huge difference day-to-day in terms of L's dad's independence now, and peace of mind for everyone that they'll be able to look after L's dad for the long-term.
