If you are finding it difficult to get in and out of the bath or shower, an Occupational Therapist (OT) can carry out an assessment with you. They will explore a range of options to best suit your needs and, if required, may recommend that your bathroom be adapted to provide a wet floor shower area.
When we receive a referral for a bathroom adaptation we will contact you to arrange a visit from one of our Care & Repair Officers to explain the process. Once you are happy to proceed, we will arrange a joint visit to your home with an OT and an Architect/Architectural Technologist. They will discuss and agree with you the best layout and design of the proposed wet floor shower. Drawings will be prepared and these will be agreed by you and the OT prior to the tendering process to appoint a contractor. We will keep you informed of progress at every stage.
Once tenders are received, we will assist with completing application forms for grant-funding from East Lothian Council and, if required, additional funding from charitable organisations.
Once funding is confirmed, a contractor will be appointed by you and we will introduce the contractor to you, explain how and when the work will be carried out and you will have the opportunity to choose wall and flooring colours from a range of samples.
