Whilst most young able-bodied people do not think twice about bathing or showering, it is more hazardous, difficult and time consuming for older or disabled people. The bathroom is the main location in the home where many falls take place. Hard slippery surfaces, combined with confined spaces create risk for everyone, regardless of their age or physical condition. Wherever you are in Lancashire, we will take care of your every need and eliminate unnecessary risks.
Is adapting your bathroom the right choice for you?
Living in Preston, Leyland, Chorley or surrounding areas and not able to use a conventional bath tub?. Alternatively, does the layout of the bathroom make it difficult for you to move between the facilities safely, or you need assistance when using your current bathroom?, if so, you may want to consider adaptations to your current bathroom.
What choices do I have?
Depending on your level of mobility and the available space, you can choose from various options
