Several months ago (March), I applied for a disabled facilities grant to have my wet room re-done, as water goes everywhere and ends up in the hall, plus I`d like a self propel commode, so I can get it over the loo…not enough room at the mo, so I use an attendant push one and try to shove myself around the place, and sometimes hurt meself!
Anyway, the OT advised me to ring the DFG dept at the council. I did so today…I am number 160 on their waiting list!!!
160…I asked what this means in terms of timescale and was told 12 months!
So I rang the bank to enquire about a loan and think it will have to be the way to go.
I talked to hubby about it and he agrees, we need it doing. He may do some of the work himself, to cut down on cost, but he is tired and I dont want to add to that. We are going to remove the present bathroom and take down it
s walls, then Ill be able to traverse through our bungalow without knocking chunks out of the walls and doorways, quite as much.
We`ll never be able to have any savings, as long as this rotten desease keeps progressing and costing us dear.
