Sharon’s mother has been coming to stay with her quite often now so she contacted an Occupational Therapist to find out how she could improve access in their bathroom. Sharon told the Occupational Therapist she was not interested in putting any hospital looking rails in her newly renovated bathroom so they contacted us.
We installed 4 rails based on the Occupational Therapists recommendation from Cabrini Health. We were able to add a 300x300mm angled rail by the toilet making it much easier to sit and stand. We also added a toilet roll holder to the rail making sure the toilet paper was within easy reach.
For the shower we installed a vertical rail to hold onto as they walk into the shower and an angled rail on the main wall to help Sharons mum get in and out of her shower seat.
Sharon since wrote to us and said she has been using the rails herself and was surprised how often she uses them and was so pleased they didn’t look clinical!
